Conf 126: The Writing Group

Wordcount: - 8

Depressing isn't it. BUT am not going to bang on about miseries of writing any more. New Year's resolutions are Green and Attitude.

A rewriting morning. Planting location 3 into location 2 has made one hell of a mess. The only thing to do is to print the section out, all 75 pages of it and cut and paste in good old sticky tape way. This will be the Christmas mission, getting the middle section of the book into some sort of order. A return to writing by hand for a while, until I know where I am again.

My writing crit group was here last night. Bit of a challenge as we're open plan now, but partner & daughter disappeared upstairs, taking DVD machine with them. We all read, we each get ten minutes & we're pretty strict on ourselves about it. Two of us are at about the same 50,000 stage of our 3rd novels; one's rewriting her second; one's just starting her 4th novel and another's just completed her 5th! L is heading for publication of her first novel in April and read her final chapter from her proof copy - which was quite a moment and a great way to finish the year.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.

I love your blog and always read it. It's good to read about a British writer: so many bloggers are based in the US.

I hope 2006 brings every success.
