My Book

There are a pile of papers on my Living Room floor, carefully arranged in chapter order, awaiting for me to start my first edit. I keep looking at the papers in the vain hope that the edit will write itself, but knowing deep down inside, that once completed, this will signify the next step of other people reading my words. I have every confidence in the storyline that I have created, but is my writing strong enough to carry it through? Only time will tell, I guess.

Okay, I'll start it today, honest...!

Yes, I know the feeling. I hate editing my own work....I'm lazy that way.

Get to it, I can't wait to read your book.

I love your list! Good luck on the book

I think I'd find the editing less daunting than writing it in the first place...but that's just me. And I could be wrong, at any rate (in other words, shut up, trousers!).

So: what b said.

Heather - I think I've come out of the 'zone' so I need to put myself right back in there.
Cheryl - welcome and thank you for your support. PS I love your illustrations!
Trousers - Editing is a little more scary as it's one step nearer showing other people your work and gulp, what if they say it's crap?

What is your book about? Good luck with it! How long do you have until you need to have ticked everything off your list?

Tabby - the book is about a girl's relationship with her Father growing and the subsequent relationships with other men that come into her life and the effect they have. I have about 2 and a half years left to do the list (officially that is i.e. before I'm 40).
