I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Back in November (November 15th to be exact), I had a full manuscript request from an agent I would really like to work with. We exchanged emails and she asked me a few questions about varying aspects of m

    Squidge, I can relate to the problem of not knowing what to prioritise. It reminds me of 'The Old Sailor'; that delightful poem by A A Milne! "There was once an old sailor my grandfather knew Who had so many things which he wanted to do That, ...

    Thanks Sandra! :-) Yours was beautifully raw. My favourite bit was: "...in a loose-limbed way that made me think about how bones worked, about how femurs rotated in the pelvic bone – about your pelvis, rotating –" Oooeee!

    Ha ha! Talk about being 'wordy' Squidge, after stitching together the pieces of the first draft of my MS, I was horrified to discover that the word count was over 230'000! Good grief, no one was going to want to go near that monster! I managed to ...

    Oh DL! How frustrating for you, to be so close to publication and have it slip through your fingers at the last moment, I feel your pain. But still, so close. There's no doubt you've nailed it, you can't help thinking it's just a matter of time now, ...

    RichardB - this blog made me want to laugh and cry simultaneously. As one who is in the very early stages - MS written, edited by a WW editor, submitted to various agents, received one full MS request, and now well into week 9 of "waiting to hear ...
