The Way Through the Woods
I’m currently the guest writer over on the splendid Just Write blog for Hodder & Stoughton. Here, you’ll find all sorts of wonderful posts about writing, rewriting and managing fear, whether of the blank page or the writing itself. Because I seem to have been rewriting and editing for the last year (OK, last 3 years…), I knew I wanted my blog to be about that process. How do we hold a book in our heads for the long haul? And what happens if we lose our way? I’ve been working on 2 novels since my first novel was published, so I’ve learned a bit about trying to hold a book together – as well as losing my way. Every book is its own animal, of course, but I hope the tips on my blog will be helpful – do please pop over and give it a read, as well as the other marvellous posts by friends at The Prime Writers – wonderful writers, all. As for me, book 3 has just gone to my agent. As they say – watch this space!
