Every Time We Say Goodbye….


Yes, it’s nearly that moment again. I’m currently working on edits and have a deadline of Friday 3rd before my WIP is sent off for professional editing. Which means I’m nearly at the end of another long journey. The story has been completed, it’s all about sorting out any typos, kinks in the timeline and tightening up the prose. The days of working on scenes, deciding on dialogue and moving the story forward to its conclusion are now over. I’m there. And although I try hard it’s difficult not to feel a little sad about saying goodbye to my characters. They’ve seen me through two books and their story has been told so as they say in the movies ‘it’s a wrap’.

Luckily I have a new idea in the melting pot; one which I will be concentrating on developing once a publication date for Watercolours in the Rain has been announced. There will be another collection of characters to meet and a new world to create and become involved in. So although there is a sadness in leaving old friends behind, I’m looking forward to meeting new ones fairly soon. It’s a case of watch this space!
