What's Happening

MS is back, after coming under the eagle-beady eye of another lit. editor.
Work to do then, but feeling very promising.

Hi Kristen,
I have some free time this weekend if you want me to take a look at some of your work.
Just PM ME and apologies I haven't been on here properly for some time.
Kindest Regards,
Alix :)
Hey Alix :) Not a bad idea… let me ponder, it might interface with something else I’m planning. Also, quite keen to get the “Slurb Club” going – a place to develop Synopses / Blurbs. A fresh pair of eyes is indispensable when you’re trying to slurb...

@AgentPete
Throwback Thursday - Considering I've just finished watching the first ever Submission Surgery :)
Would you consider creating like the Flash Fiction exercise, a Cookies exercise to practise emotional impact in our manuscripts, like a weekly exercise and you give us a theme. You can announce the best one/winner on POP-UPS every Sunday. Just a thought because I feel us writers would really benefit from it.

Hey you :)
Got your latest email regarding the SCI-FI publishers.
Cheers
No creative writing (since a flurry after Pete's input the other day), but I have produced a 10cm high pile of photocopies & original documents to support my application for French residency. (Just mine, 3 more to go) that's nearly one ream of paper = 6% of a tree.
That moment in your novel, when your protagonist decides he has other plans than you. Who's writing this thing? Erm, not me, apparently.
