Ok, so I’m going to put my writing where my frustration has been (thanks to everyone for the helpful hints) and publish a serialised short story on my blog. My hope is to update every Thursday with a new chapter.
I am open to advice and criticism, however, I am hoping it will be a good read and you’ll come back for the next instalments, each week.
In the meantime, I will add some reviews of books I’ve read, as Stephen King wrote – ‘if you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time to write!’
I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice, which once you get into the rhythm of Jane Austen’s writing becomes easier to read, but I can’t help thinking what a bunch of aristocratic lay abouts they all seem. Mind I’m not that far through yet, so I’m sure my estimation of the characters will change.
