I agree that having time between drafts is helpful. I didn’t read the other post (that’s against the “cooling off” period) yet but I think there’s a balance between writing, editing and giving space to both in order to see the story with fresh eyes.
Anyway, new to your blog…and just purchased Haunted. I’m actually a punk when it comes to ghosts lol but the story sounds interesting. Look forward to reading it.
Welcome to my blog! And wow, thanks for buying Haunted! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
You’re right about balance being very important. It is possible to use a cooling off period as an excuse to not work on a piece or not publish it. But editing before you have that objectivity can make things difficult to work on or publish as well!
