Rocky Road to Success

Hey,

So I have started to submit my novel to agents and publishers alike and truth be known I am kinda finding it stressful and it’s making me very MANIC!

After I entered that first competition and was like yeah here we go, I think it’s kinda a come down. I know it’s only since the 19th April when I started which isn’t even a month ago! I had this great idea of I would submit 5 of each and then wait till they all reject me and then try another five. But that idea has kinda gone out of the window. As I keep finding people to submit to, never mind whether they were on my list or not. I have also been trying to find people who are already publishing what I write….

I have had two rejections for agents and one rejection from a publisher out of the 12 (as of yesterday) I had sent out.

Book two woe’s continue, as I try and find information on immigration and asylum and try and find people to speak to. One person I had to defend my character to! As she wasn’t willing to help because she didn’t want my readers to think that people came to England to traffic drug. Needless to say I haven’t heard from said charity again! Though I have a great friend who is a social worker and she has been answering my general questions. You know what I think I need to just WRITE! and worry about getting it correct later!

I hope everyone else out there is doing okay 🙂

yours as always

Writing

I was talking to an author yesterday and she asked me what I write so I told her

“An MI5 agent who leaves the service to have a family etc, then a body appears in her new home town of Long Eaton and her past comes back knocking on her door”

You heard it here first…

Day one of the rest of your life

So I have just written the first chapter / bit of my story.

I have already had some fun with google when I typed..

“The pot plants that were in various stages of” and it came up with pages about growing weed! Erm no plants that live in pots that you find in offices? Is decay a good word???

My health has been shit today so I really should be asleep…

Writing class tomorrow 🙂
