I’ve written a novel. I’ve rewritten a novel. Shortly after Christmas I will be rereading and rewriting it again, and when that is done the Great Journey begins. The book what I wrote will be set free to roam around the inboxes and slushpiles of various editors, agents and publishers in the hope that one of them likes it enough to take a risk on a first-time, unpublished novelist.
And during this Great Journey, I will be recording events here on my blog. The stress, the anguish, the waiting, the rejection and – dare I dream? – even the acceptance and the publishing.
Come with me, and maybe one day the words I typed into my laptop will appear in a book on your lap.
