1st report

Okay so I spent almost an hour tweaking BTL and I thought I would report on progress. Well, considering I haven't touched any fiction writing since the October it went alright. It felt fine.
There are now 66 more words than there were before and none of them refer to G - he hasn't reappeared yet. However my MC has finally found her voice. The interested agent from last year said that she liked the voice of the MC but now it is perfect - just right for her - and me.
I have to say that there have been times in the last few months when I wondered if I would ever touch fiction again because the non fiction is ticking along nicely but after making the committment in Blogland to do it and actually making the effort to find the time, I really enjoyed it.

But what have you done with G? Are you killing him off?

Colette McCormick said...

NO! Frances NEVER! He'll be lurking in the corner very shortly.

It's nice to go back to your work after a break and disover it's ... well, not that bad really! Glad you're enjoying it again.

Its a start Suzanne and I find that that is half the battle.

So far so good Suzanne but then we haven't gone very far yet.

Hi Collette, thanks for looking at my blog, I'm now going to have a read at yours. My sister writes fiction for a hobby, and I have always written fact. I've had a few magazine articles printed. I am a morning person, my brain starts to shut down mid afternoon so you won't get any sense out of me after then, ha ha.

No problem MQ (great name). I'm a morning person too - I'm usually ready for a nap in the afternoon.
