Yesterday eve in bed. Himself, reading some book or another. Me, nearly asleep. Himself huffs, and puts the book down.
'This story needs more catflap.'
Now I'm wide awake, thanks. 'Catflap?!?!'
'Yeah, more good stuff, coming and going in the story.'
'What?'
'You know, that agent and his friends always talk about books needing more catflap.'
'Oh, you mean more "cowbell".'
I'm sorry to hear of the death of one of my writing heroes, Andrea Camilleri, whose Inspector Montalbano crime novels are intriguing fun. He should be one of the patron saints of older writers, for he found fame at the age of 66. Andrea Camilleri obituary
After the first wave of edits, I've been letting my MS rest for the past week. And what do you know, I actually miss my protagonist. Interesting. That's a new one.
Very excited to have New Zealand writer Lee Murray @leemurraywriter as our special guest on tomorrow's Pop-Up Submissions - join us at 5pm UK time!
I think we may be nearly there. Very frustrating, computers, sometimes... :)
I've just discovered the joys of a chalk board to make notes for my novel. Much more eco-friendly than paper, I hope.
