Lunch with Rose!
I recently caught up with Rose McGinty at her Electric Souk book signing at Waterstones in Ashford.
Afterwards we had a late lunch, putting the world to rights about work, writing and all things on the road to publishing!
It's good to share with other writers not only your hopes and dreams, but overcoming the obstacles in getting ahead in the literary world. Then reminding ourselves that finishing a manuscript is something in itself! It's a matter of time, tenacity and a big pinch of luck to get any further. We patted ourselves on the back, realising if we can work hard in the NHS, at a senior level, so used to dealing with deadlines, targets, criticism, editing, blah blah, then we are more than ready for the literary world! Thank you Rosie for your optimism and firmly grounded opinions, and the encouragement to keep going.
Over lunch I also interviewed Rose about being a writer, and all things being equal, this will be posted soon in June. First though, I need to dust down bucket and spades, and a good book or two ~ I'm off to Devon at the weekend!
