Hey, big huge congrats to the winners of the Presents Writing Competion! To get so far out of so many entries is a huge acheivement. Chocolate martinis and champagne cocktails all round.
Especially to fellow aspirant MH author and MH winner, Gill (AKA Jilly). I’ve only just met you but your talent is truly inspiring. Can’t wait to read the book!
In other positive news, I have heard back from the ed. She wants me to send her detailed character back-stories for Cat and Sean before a partial and a synopsis. So I’m still in the game here! Now this is something I should have done way back when and just didn’t because I’m so damn impatient to get to writing the story. No longer!
So this weekend is my time to sort out just who my characters are. I’m going to write detailed backstories for them, why they are the people they are when the story opens. Very excited as this feels like I’m finally getting to the root of my problems with conflict…
More next week!
