I’m either gradually getting a better sense of writing as a craft or I’m procrastinating. As I start some revisions for Duty of Care my instinct is that I need to do some re-plotting. I think I’ve two novels here not one. The trouble is I did rather more than warm to my subject, I positively over-heated.
I’m unpicking at the moment. It’s intricate, perhaps a dissection is a better image.
The work needs to move from being a good yarn to a page turner. For now I’m focusing on the new, streamlined plot. More writing. Better pacing but you know, that’s the job. It’s an extraordinary one, let’s face it.
