Oh dear, the first week is almost over!

How is everybody doing?

I’m having quite a different experience this year. Last year I had a loose plan and a lot of time off, this year I’m insanely busy and my plan isn’t much more than a couple of suggestions. The story is developing well, though, lacking somewhat in suspense in its current form. One of the most interesting things about starting a novel is the way the biggest weaknesses in your plot aren’t visible until you start hitting the keys. I’m currently weighing up if I should try to fix them as I go, or plow on and hope for the best. Either way, the book is still keeping my interest, and should carry through well to the end of the month.

In other news, my big November freebie ends today. The books aren’t all ending on the same day, so it’s still worth having a look, but you might be too late. It was a pretty successful promotion, lots of copies given away, so it’s nice to know the stories are getting into people’s hands.

As usual, let me know how you’re getting on in the comments!

  • My book that I thought was a suspense filled plot driven monster has turned into a family relationship drama! Ugh.

  • Uh-oh. Are you going to try and redirect the ship or sail on and see how it goes?

  • I think I’m just going to See where it goes 🙂

  • Good Luck!
