Well folks, apologies all round. My promise to update weekly has slipped somewhat this month but in my defence I have been busy!
My health is still not all it should be but I am nearer to a diagnosis for my vision and balance problems than I have been during the last couple of years. The Dr seems to think it could be 'silent migraines' and I am hoping for confirmation from the hospital next week. Writing a novel is no easy task when 2-3 times a week you are rendered incapable of seeing the laptop screen!
However, that aside, I am delighted to tell you that the novel is finished and has had its first complete edit. I did not win the TLC free read competition but my achievement of conceiving, planning and writing a novel in less than a year makes me feel anything but a loser.
I plan to put it away for a few weeks and then re-read it with fresh eyes and renewed optimism with a view to seeing it published. During the weeks it is 'resting' I shall indulge in a couple of short stories and quite possibly even begin planning the next novel. A wonderful and exciting way to start the new year.
I shall of course keep you posted.
