Sounds good, Abe, but that doesn't work for me. I'm too much of an editor to change hats and become a reader, especially when I've already been over the material so often that I have it memorized.
What does work for me is to set the manuscript aside a few days, even weeks, and work on something else. Then when I go back to the pages, I spot things I hadn't been able to see before. The longer I can set it aside, the fresher my eyes are when reading.
Sometimes I'm happy with what I wrote, other times it's, "What in the world was I thinking?"
