Wednesday, hump day, middle of the week; the day of the week that most school children look forward to because the school week is almost over. Wednesday to a writer is more of a deadline. Can I fix my novel before Friday? Can I have a peaceful weekend because I straightened out the problems in my work-in-progress? Can I actually go to see my parents? My siblings? The answer is YES!! GO!! A distance between you and your manuscript is the best way to make sure you have fixed all the issues. Then once you reread you words you will be as excited as kids looking toward the end of the school week to get back to work.
