"Women writers make for rewarding (and efficient) lovers. They are clever liars to fathers and husbands; yet they never hold their tongues too long, nor keep ardent typing fingers still."

That would super exciting!!!!

I know, right? I mean, it’s only a local thing really, but it’s going to be a fun experience I think! I can’t wait to get stuck in!

Writing Project!

Had a phone call from my nurse today, and her department are doing an animation about patients with psychosis to help enlighten people. Apparently she’s put my name forward to help write the script!

It’s an exciting prospect, because not only is it a great way for me to flex my writing muscles, but also it’s something really important and personal to me. There’s a lot of negative stigma attached to psychosis, and I’d really like to help in any way I can to alleviate it.

I have a meeting on Thursday to exchange thoughts and ideas and meet the rest of the team, so I’ll keep you posted on how it goes!

Reading Through Your First Draft

The desk is finally finished! :D it’s a bit peculiar to think I wrote the whole first draft of a book faster than I finished my new workspace, but what the hey!
Send me pictures of your desks too! I’d love to see where we all work :)

Book two, second draft -

It’s been almost two weeks since I finished the first draft of book two, so I know I’m seriously ahead of myself but I can’t sit on it any longer. I’m bored out of my skull and I’m itching to get back to Naomi’s story and fix all the heinous mistakes I made in the first draft. I’ve had some feedback from my excellent and trusted beta readers, and I’ve cobbled out a very basic re-plot so I feel like I’m in a place where I can at least start.

The feedback I’ve had so far has been really mixed -some people like things about the story that others felt didn’t make much sense- so I’m kind of feeling a bit uncertain about it all right now. The trouble is that I think until I get cracking I can’t really make any of these big decisions about what to keep and what to scrap. For now I’m just going out of my mind with all this waiting around!

I’m still hoping to have a go at NaNoWriMo this year and maybe try and write Freaks of Nature (the one about the zombie school girls, do any of you remember it?) because with TRQ I haven’t ever really gotten around to it. Still, we’ll see how this second draft goes, as to whether I follow through in November. I’m not good at working on two projects at once!
