Well, it's very hard getting back into the swing of writing!! This always happens when I take a few days off (OK, it was more than a few days... nearer a week and a half!) Anyway, I managed 1k yesterday which got me back into the story, and another 1k today which is a huge relief since this scene was very sticky. And probably the reason why I left it hanging on Christmas Eve!!
The week leading up to Christmas was very exciting, with emails flying between my agent, editor and me regarding back cover copy for FORBIDDEN. As soon as it's all finalised I'll post it up here and on my website. I also hammered out a brief bio (why are those things so hard?I never know what to put in them!!) And hopefully it shouldn't be too long before we have a cover!!
I stumbled across an interesting blog post this afternoon - Top Ten Questions Dutton Editors Ask Themselves When Looking at a Manuscript. Although aimed at children's writers the points are pretty universal for all writers, I think!
