This draft is definitely becoming more and more like the book I wanted to write. I feel as if the clouds have parted in my mind and the story is becoming clearer. The characters are more familiar to me and surprisingly enough, I’ve simplified the story and that in its own has amplified the story so much more.
On another note, I’ve spoken about Jamie Chavez’s blog. She has fabulous posts about writing and so on. Her most recent post, which you can read here, answers that question “Ive written a book. Now what?” It’s incredibly helpful and has links to where writers can find publishers, agents and so on.
