It's been a while since I posted, so I thought I would ramble off a blurb and update a bit. Been very busy scribbling away at the new book, mildly obsessed in fact. That's a good thing. Obsession gets shit done. Otherwise I'd procrastinate another decade away.
So things have been progressing well. Joined a competition called The Next Big Author, which is an affiliate of a fantastic writers' critiquing website called YouWriteOn, where the first 7000 words of your novel are peer judged, and the top five are awarded a professional critique from a major publishing house.
I joined mostly because I wanted some feedback from knowledgable sources on the opening of the new book. Thought it might help me progress, inspire me a bit to press on. But as the days wore on, and the great reviews poured in, I started to get a little excited. I'm currently bouncing around in the top ten on the site and have had some very nice feedback. Feel free to take a look - I would love to have more thoughts. Book title: "The Forbidden Experiment"
Competition or not, I'll be hanging around this site for a long time to come to polish all my future work. Couldn't recommend it enough.
Thinking about posting some of my writing on here - I guess that's what a blog is for, huh?
