It's September Already!
How are we at September all ready? The year's definitely has its skates on!
So after a quiet August blog wise, I've posted Just Going for a Run about the similarities of writing and trying to get fitter ~ you gotta stick at both!
Finished reading some great books this summer, including Ali Land's Good Me Bad Me, and Felicia Yap's, Yesterday ~ posted review's under 'Books ~ July / August Reads & Reviews.' Go and have a sneaky peak and let me know what you think. Have chosen September / October reads ~ not such an ambitious list as before as I need to buckle down on getting another manuscript finished this autumn (by Christmas I'm aiming for). Can always find time for a read though.
My other novel will start once more with another round of sending out to Agents ~ always a nerve wracking experience as you are literally sending a piece of yourself out each time for scrutiny. So far I've had a couple of "thanks but no thanks" (you never find out why you've been turned down); and a really nice rejection a short while ago from a reputable agent. Lovely positive words about my work and my writers 'voice,' and unfortunately couldn't take me on. Gave me words of encouragement to continue writing ~ which is just about all any writer wants to hear.
Here's to receiving a 'Thanks and yes please!' soon.
