... a little fact
Yesterday I finished the cut and paste job on the first four chapters of Accidentally On Purpose. I've also got about half way through chapter 5. And for the first time, it feels like I have something which may actually eventually become a novel! This is quite a breakthrough!
Now I have the following 'how to' books to read.
The Weekend Novelist Writes a Mystery by Robert J Ray and Jack Remick
How To Write A Damn Good Novel by James N Frey
The main problem I have with 'how to' books is that I tend to end up reading them at times when I have no chance of doing any writing, so I worry that I won't implement the ideas I've read and I'll end up losing them.
Does anyone else have that problem, and has anyone read either of these books?
I had an email from This England magazine yesterday to say that the edition with my story Reflections in will be available really soon. This story is very important to me as it is about my parents, so it will be really exciting to finally see it in print.
