Back to the Start

30 Nov

I’ve been procrastinating a bit, but once again having to submit to my writers’ group has made me open the novel again and admit that there is still work to be done. While my beta readers are merrily reading away I’m going back to p1. Hopefully this will be the final draft, at least until I get some feedback from agents. So I need to make sure that I’ve done all the things I set out to do (or at least the ones I didn’t abandon early on). I’ve got a huge ring binder full of notes and drafts, another one full of feedback from my group on all the extracts they’ve seen, before I even consider the 211 pages that is ‘All the Places I’ve Ever Been’. I suppose I better get on with it then. Aiming to be finished by the end of Jan.
