I finished a manuscript last night, yes a whole manuscript. And I say, with great caution, that I think it’s the best thing I’ve written.
Yes, great caution, because now begins a period of rumination, a time when I won’t even glance at the finished article. This is important, he says with his limited experience. I’ll go away, work on something else, (a manuscript for a novel for adults I’m working on), try not to even think about the finished one, so that in a few weeks I can come back to it with fresh eyes. Hopefully, when i do come back to it, it’ll be as good as I think it is now. We shall see.
