Welcome to my blog!

I created this blog so that I can post my writing and hopefully gain some valuable feedback on it. I will soon start posting a new chapter each week, from a book I’m starting.

I’ve agreed to this Chapter-per-week blog-a-thon under duress from a friend who will be doing the same. I think she didn’t want the pressure of doing this unless there was also some competition. If I can do it, she can. If I write 8 pages, she’ll write 11. πŸ™‚ No, not really. It will be great practice for us and it will definitely help our output.

To give a little background on my writing, I’ve recently finished my first novel. That’s not to say this is the first novel I’ve written; it’s the first one I’ve finished. I wrote 1.5 rough drafts and 7 “final” drafts. Currently it’s in the hands of several good friends who will hopefully be kind when they tell me what I need to work on. πŸ™‚ At the same time, I’m working on the synopsis and query letter. I will be sending the manuscript to potential literary agents. I want to go the traditional route first and exhaust all of my options with the publishers before I try eBooks. I believe this will be my final draft of the novel. I have a friend lined up who will do the editing, so that it is as error-free as we can get it. She’s a grammar queen and knows all the quirky, tricky crap that could catch me up. Writing a novel is definitely NOT a solitary endeavour, but GOD do I love it. πŸ™‚
