So, I have been back from our wonderful holiday in Sardinia for a couple of days now. I have done all the chores, I have reacquainted myself with the Internet and I have suffered a bout of the blues about the loss of the simple life we enjoyed on holiday. But today, I feel reinvigorated and ready to move on.
I had planned to read the first draft of my novel so far (it still isn’t finished yet!) whilst on holiday and do a preliminary edit at the same time. Well, I did make a start but it was just too good to be on holiday so I didn’t finish it. However, I have just put in another hour’s work and feel really good for it. I am hoping to finish this within the next couple of days and also to review the comments I have received on Authonomy. If you fancy reading the first five chapters of my novel, the link is here:
All constructive comments greatly appreciated :)
I am then going to try and use Scrivener to do my second draft but I think I am going to need a bit of time to work out how to use it to best effect.
So, at least I have a plan in place and that’s making me feel much better and I have some great photos and memories of our holiday to keep me going too.
