It’s a new year, a new decade and plenty is happening in the world. Having not updated the actual blog part of this site for a while, I felt it was about time I rectified that.
The last time I mentioned anything about my novel, I was embarking upon the 8th draft. This weekend, I finished it. Big sigh of relief! It’s been a tough 6 or 7 months of writing and trying to fit it in between the other day job but I’m finally there and I’m feeling reasonably pleased with it.
The main aim with this draft (and I wouldn’t have done another if I didn’t think it was necessary) was to streamline it a little more and give it some tension towards the end, which it was perhaps lacking.
Without reading it, saying any more would be pointless so I’ll leave it there. Needless to say, I am now looking into finding some representation once more and I am hoping that the changes I have made will make the difference.
I have many projects that have been backing up behind this one, so expect to see so more action on here for the foreseeable. I have some ambitions to publish something non-fiction next, but I’ve also got a couple of short stories lined up as well. For the time being, have a look at my latest dieting post in the medical tab. Worth a read if you’re feeling some of those extra calories!
