Synopsis and Covering Letter….

Aaaaaargh…….what can I say.  My manuscript is out there being read for feedback by a mixture of friends  drawn from the sixth degree of separation and trusted for their ability to be forthright.  Meantime I must allow it to rest and concentrate on the business of construction of the aforementioned, just in case my manuscript is almost ready.  Another task is to seek a blog focus, in the meantime my site is also resting.

Decisions, decisions

Decision altered! Tense change and loss of character idea thrown right out. So pleased! Was the wrong decision. Rewrite well underway to tighten, round out one of the main characters AND lose a few cups of coffee!  ‘Why are they all drinking coffee all the time?’ (Crit reader). Oops.


Yesterday was a write-off…for reasons involving  final birthday dinners, Aperol cocktails, red wine and time enjoyed with friends! Yesterday’s word count – 0! Today I rise to get the regime underway.  NaNo is to help me stick with a full revision which involves the huge task of a tense change, the loss of one major narrator who is also a main character, and the addition of a little narrator’s thought intrusion. It may be a total failure but I want to try it.  Here goes.
