Up until now this blog as been used (although not for a long time) for my reflections and musings on life. However in a break from our usual programming, over the next few months I’m going to commandeer it for something different.
Some of you will know that I am in the process of writing a novel. I finished the first draft a while ago and invited a small group of people to read it and give me feedback. I now face the task of taking their thoughts and suggestions and creating draft two. I could easily dawdle over this process for an inordinate amount of time but, as this project has already taken years to reach this stage, I need to set myself a goal and put in place some accountability!
So, from next Monday (12th Sept), I will post two chapters a week on here (Monday and Thursday), making the changes as I go. I am looking for some readers to come along with me and, when we reach the end in mid December, to give me some further feedback. This isn’t about proof-reading or finding grammatical errors, but giving your thoughts on the storyline, plot points, characters etc. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then please sign up on the email list via the sidebar, or like the Cultivating and Creating Facebook page, if you haven’t done so already.
If this isn’t what you came here for, feel free to unfollow or ignore these posts for the foreseeable future!
Thanks, Tara x
