Once again you need some patience here, to let the project really dry. If you try to put finishing touches on too soon - it just won't be ready. When painting my chairs, they sat overnight, and then I wanted to add the style to really make the chair my own. I made the mistake of not using the proper tools, I started to add the accent color and basically I made a mess - but thankfully I was smart enough to stop & get the right tools for the job. This is the part in your editing process where you need tools like an outside editor (or two or three) to help you get the job done. In painting, my tool was as simple as some painter's tape.
It took some time and effort to apply the painters tape, but it saved so much time in fixing mistakes later. It is uncomfortable, and even a struggle at times, but once I carefully removed the tape, I had such a beautiful chair. Editing your manuscript can be a struggle too - it feels uncomfortable, but if you use the right editor, once the tape is removed you will be happy with the finished product too. Now beware, even after the tape came off, I still found a few spots that needed some touch up. One extra look through your manuscript (or two or three) can find any spots that still might need a touch up.
Your project is complete, make sure to find time to really enjoy it! It's okay to show off and brag a little, you worked really hard. Make sure to celebrate and brag about your manuscript too. Not only is this a good way to celebrate, but it helps to generate some pre-sales excitement for your book.
After some time relaxing and enjoying your creation, if you are anything like me, you will be ready to start on another project soon.
