There is no down time:
Start a new piece
Continue a work in progress
Conclude a work
Confer with me or another student about problems you're having with content or craft.
Confer with me about editorial issued I identified in a finished piece
Develop a character for a later short story
Read published models of a kind o writing
Move to a more appropriate genre
Take a break from a difficult project to whip off an easy one.
If you have completed your third project, you may also write letters, informational papers, and many other pieces.
