So... Doorways is done... for most of a week now. Feelings about that: Mixed.
On the one hand, I'm thrilled and enjoying the freedom of not having anything to finish.
On the other, I'm... bored. After all, I've spent a very long time working on it. It's basically framed my life for almost six years. Now it's gone. Sure I might, and probably will do some final polishes, but nothing that requires my immediate attention just yet. On the contrary, if I'm going to do some more polishing even though it's good enough now, I need distance. Which means I need to do anything else but work on Doorways.
In fact, I'm thinking I might take a bit of a break on writing, since it had taken up a substantial part of my life. You know, to experiment with new hobbies, catch up with friends, read more...
*snort* Yeah. Right. My muse is already back on my case with a variety of options as to what I can work on.
So... maybe my writing holiday will come to an end soon.
What do you do after finishing a manuscript?
