Looking forward

I've been working on the things that my friend pointed out with regards to my book. I corrected the grammar that she pointed out and then I thought about the points that she had made. I realised that she was right about the way that my central character was reacting to a situation and I changed that and I do think that the story is better for it. Also I have now decided that the way another character (not G) behaves isn't right so I have changed that as well. It will mean a substantial re-write later in the book but I'm up for it if it makes it better. I have now given myself the target of having it accepted by an agent or publisher by the end of next year.
I also wrote a short story yesterday. I haven't had much published in 2008 and what I've earned would hardly pay for a good night out but it's full steam ahead with 2009 in mind.

It sounds like you've got your work cut out for you. Good luck with all your writing, re-writing and subbing activities.

like you, GBW, I haven't had a word in print for quite awhile now so I hope that 2009 will be my year to jump around shouting "Yes, Yes, Oh Yes!"

Best wishes, my dear friend, ((Hug))

Thanks for the hug I need it today.
