My first chapter was originally the fifth and it needs a good shake up to make it work. And I need to make sure it all works. It needs to sparkle, and that's no small task.
So to try and give myself the best chance I've been reading up. Ever since I started this blog I've been heavily reliant on the library service. At any point since last March I've had about twenty books out on the various aspects of writing. This has been great because there is no way I could afford to buy all these books however much I'd like to.
In a stroke of luck, earlier this year I won a £100 book token for my vote in The TV Book Club. After taking some advice on recommended reads, I have been spending the voucher wisely. It has meant that I have been able to get hold of some books not available at my library and this time I get to keep them.
I've also been reading some novels in the chick lit/contemporary fiction genre. Not everyone does this for fear of taking on that writer's style but I need to know I am heading in the right direction.
Now I've charged my brain I hope the edits speed up! I will be re-stocking the tea and chocolate supplies. Any other tips for the next stage gratefully received.
