I managed to finish The Rest Falls Away quicker than I thought so I’ve started on the review early. I certainly should have it ready and up on my blog this time next week.
As for my novels, I’ve decided to give sending my manuscript out to agents a bit of a break. After cutting out my first chapter, there are a few ‘frayed’ edges that need to be neated up e.g. references to deleted scenes, missing character descriptions and just general narrative untidiness. Instead, I polished off a short story and sent it to Writer’s Forum. I’m a subscriber and I also paid extra for some feedback. None of the agents will provide feedback to rejected manuscript and feedback is worth every penny.
I seem to have hit a bit of a dead end at the second novel again. My character is in an argument with another and I’m not sure how to get him out of it. I definitely know he’s going to come off worse but, apart from that, I don’t know much else. I’ll need to have another think on that.
