    Very interesting re the possible personal bias. That's a key observation that she was more hostile than others before I'd say! Definitely get second opinions. And, re editing, don't do anything hasty. Your subconscious will probably come up with the ...

    Oh, yeah, re Hilly's comment. I didn't mean to say you should ignore all the comments; adapt accept ignore or whatever it is! But, I just mean you don't need to think it means your novel is a no go. At all. As far as the damn market goes, I don't ...

    Hey, if she thinks that 'subject to some revision' you should pitch it, then I think that is a green light. A yes rather than a no. Which is so rare in this business. Also, you need to remember this is just one person's opinion. I just had a short ...

    Ack... the waiting! All the waiting. And then more waiting. One of the major downsides of writing in my world! Still, hopefully one of these days it will be worth it :-). xx

    Ah, Richard, do you have any idea how long you'll have to wait?? Nothing like the agony of waiting for feedback, particularly when one has high hopes for it. I've got everything crossed for you! Hope you let us know how it turns out. xx

    This is brilliant Kate. So engaging. Love it! You can really see how much your writing has come on leaps and bounds since the SE course! You might be on to a real winner here. Well done C xx

About
