stories about diversity.

10th September, 2015

Well another week, and a fairly productive one. I managed to submit my completed manuscript for Simon Goes to Spain to Ampersand Project Prize, which closes on the 14th.

I had to research how to write an author bio. It was quite a freaky process, writing about your self in third person! I found a couple of okay sites that gave a brief description of how to, as it was last minute, of course. Some of the sites I used included; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/heather-hummel/10-tips-on-how-to-write-a-bio_b_4908716.html?ir=Australia ; this site was quite useful http://annerallen.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/how-to-write-author-bio-when-you-dont.html and if you search Google there are loads more!

I have begun work on my historical fiction/family saga, again. I finally decided on a structure that may work. As I wanted to write about my contemporary aspect in first person and narrate the historical aspect but have them completely separate from each other resulting in the contemporary version having no idea about what happened in the historical part of the novel! I didn’t think finding the right structure would be so difficult?

Meanwhile I am still reading April’s Fool Day, very sad but engrossing.

In my writing, I am working on developing the suspense aspect. It proved very difficult to give away the antagonist’s identity, but I’m thinking suspense.

I hope you enjoy the next chapter.

Simon goes to Spain.
