In On Writing, Stephen King recommends that once one finishes their first draft (of a novel), they should immediately put it away (let it rest) for a minimum of six weeks. And while the first draft is resting away, one could (or should) start a new project (something entirely different and/or shorter) or get back to one's everyday life again. The route I have taken (with the first draft of my novella complete), is to almost immediately embark on writing a totally different genre short story (something in the length of four to six thousand words). I'm crafting it at one thousands words per day, and should be done shortly (obviously). My question is, how long should I put it (the short story) away to rest, before rewriting and revising it? Six weeks too? Or for shorter works, do you all think Stephen King would recommend a shorter time frame? I'm totally new at this craft, so any and all input is much appreciated.
