I haven't been around much, because I've been redrafting a novella. I was hoping to turn it into a novel, but at the moment it's just a slightly longer novella. But I've cleared up some dodgy plot issues, and improved some of the characterisation.
I've hit a bit of a problem with the last couple of chapters, though. I know what I want my poor character to suffer next, but I'm not sure if it actually makes sense in the life I've created for her. She's also started to whinge quite a lot about the same thing, over and over. So this isn't my final draft - I'm going to have to go back over it and work out where the whinging is a step too far.
With surprise, the other day, I opened up our local community magazine and saw me!
Thank you to everyone at Love Saltash. I'm just about getting used to people recognising me in the street now.
