Sorry it has been so long since I posted! I have been moving house/city/job so internet and even, I’m sorry to say, writing has taken a back seat for a while. Back in the swing of things now though!
It has been over a month now, and I am still waiting on agents to get back to me (so annoying!). I think it’s time to start again. Yesterday I sat at my brand new window with a brand new view and re-read The Existence of Jonathan. I still enjoyed it, but now, with fresh eyes, I have seen bits that might need rejigging. I have swapped the beginning over slightly so it now starts differently. I think it might still need a bit of work there. What I wish is that someone could just tell me what to do to change it from being a good book, to the kind of book agents will jump at. If only that person existed! I also need to start sending out again. It is hard to find the motivation to do all that research for what will quite possibly be no reason. But this novel is doing nothing sitting on my laptop desktop!
I’m still positive, however. Maybe redrafting will help, who knows. One day I’m getting there: whatever the cost.
