Current work: Revisions, take two
Listening to: not today as everyone’s home and I’m working
Reading: Carol Townend, Runaway Lady, Conquering Lord (enjoyed very much – excellent period drama)
I am screamingly busy so I am going to direct you elsewhere today for some fabulous advice. It’s nominally about crime writing, but I think a lot of it would apply to other genres of commercial fiction. I haven’t read any of Stuart MacBride’s novels, but this interview really makes me want to go and read his books, because I like the way he comes across. (And anyone with a cat called Grendel – ha, I like the way his mind works.) There’s a great deal of sensible advice in there, plus some things that made me laugh for the right reasons. Go and take a look.
(And no, I’m not planning to write crime or murder my editor. Am being a well-behaved wordsmith and knuckling down to second revisions. Am not going to confess to how few chocolates remain from the weekend, inhaled by me while playing Spider, aka thinking about how I’m going to tackle the revisions.)
