~STAGE ONE: WRITE, WRITE, & WRITE SOME MORE.~
So you’ve written a book that you’re pretty proud of, am I right? The smartest thing to do after writing a book is to put it away to let it breathe. This could be for a couple of months—even six months. That doesn’t mean that you will be sitting idly by—you will be moving on to your next creation. The biggest point is to write, write, and write some more. This is the only way you are going to improve and hone your craft.
So the time is here to bring your hard-worked creation back out and read over it for the first time in a while. Make sure you have a notepad ready because more than likely you will begin to notice inconsistencies or errors that you might have missed when originally writing it. This is your chance to clean your story up. Revise-edit-revise-edit and so on.
