Workshopped Chapter One at Uni today ...and..it was pretty much universally well recieved so I'm really encouraged. Intersting that some people completely got it and understood where I am comming from - others didnt.....and of course people have diferent style preference. I just like to break all the rules!
Am now sure I will start with Julie on the tube as my Chapter One(if you're reading this - you know who you are, thank you!)
Tutorialed the really tricky incident scene with Alison - but - she overall seemed to think it works quite well as it is. Just need to tighten here and there a little.
I enjoyed the day and it was immensley good for me to listen to/read the work of other fiction writers. Am learning a lot I think.
Tomorrow plan to rework/edit Chapters Two and Three then nose to the grind stone and start Chapter Four....I feel that I need to now revisit the Chapter precises again...I want to add in more on Julie after today. The plan will structure my writing schedule which I need to continue if I am going to meet the 60 k min. by June.
Having my first tango in London again tomorrow afternoon in MOORGATE(for those of you wondering what's happened to this part of my raison d tre).
