No matter where you finished, you now have words written, your first draft.
Step 1. You may need to finish some words to get the story completely done, and then comes the hard part.
Step 2. The marinating. Once your draft is done, put it away for a while and work on something else. Maybe it only needs a week or two, but it might need longer. You will know. The key is to let enough time pass that you can look at the draft with fresh eyes. Before you start…
Step 3. Editing.
What step are you on? Are you finishing your story? Or are your ready to let it sit for a while?
Keep on writing.
