Picture this: you’ve typed The End on your manuscript. Maybe you won NaNoWriMo, or you’ve just been working quietly to your own schedule. You want to stand on a mountain top, fling your arms in the air and shout to the world, “Yes, I’m finished!”
Celebrate! It’s a huge achievement. Only a small percentage of the people who long to write a book ever start; a much smaller percentage finish. You have done an extraordinary thing.
But also… you’re not finished. The End is not the end, it’s just the beginning of the adventure.
What you’ve written is a first draft. If you want to write your very best book, there is a lot more work to do before you’re finished.
