One of the most commonly repeated pieces of advice for revising is to take some time between writing your draft and working on revisions.
What I usually do is set a story aside for a couple of months while I write the first draft of another project (because there are always more stories waiting for me to write). I don't like to rush. Revisions require incubating time as well as writing time.
