‘Words’ & ‘why’

Image The sun blinked on and off, misty rain came and went and this Bank Holiday weekend I managed to finish putting all my corrections and revisions of The Draft (from at least two previous read-throughs) onto the computer. The perils of working old-skool! I did essentially double my work time but I also feel that it perhaps let me perform this part of the process more thoroughly. Maybe in the future though I’ll stick with typing all the way through!

Anyway, my ‘final’ (can they ever really be final?) revisions are done and now, I have to take a step back from it all for at least a week, despite wanting to press on with things, and give myself time to clear my head enough so I can return for another read-through and see if there’s anything I missed.

I’m also to hear back from Damian Gorman this week about my first chapter and depending on what he says, there may be more suggestions to take on board. It’s great though to have talented local writers, already flourishing in the business, taking the time to give me feedback on my work.

I’m also currently reading ‘Exchange Place’ by Ciaran Carson, which I’ll be reviewing here soon for Blackstaff Press, although I may throw in a few thoughts about it along the way…
