Busy, busy, busy – working on The Book. I hope to be finished this first draft at the end of September. Then will come the hard work of the second and third edits. Hopefully it will be finished in its entirety by next Easter. That is my goal. Then will come the time when I’ll be sending off the blurb to agents and publishers, whilst praying and hoping....
I’ve actually found a friend who is giving me valuable feedback on my book. Several offered before & said they were reading it but I knew they weren’t! The blog site where I post it has no followers! Then the only comments they say is “It’s nice.” What’s nice? Nice doesn’t tell me anything & besides the start takes place in a war & what’s so nice about that? I’d rather people said they don’t have the time or they don’t want to rather than bluff.
Why do people promise to do something then don’t, hoping they’ll get away with a bluff? OK, things happen where you can’t always keep a promise. That’s life. It happens. Why not just be honest? Being honest isn’t a crime. Bluffers always get found out. Bluffers lose credibility.
