ALIAS JEANNIE DELANEY
The Writing of It...
Aaaghhh...it's sooo bloody hard writing an epic novel, one that covers half the lifetime of the protagonist. I'm working through it, chapter by chapter, with Husband's help. He's a brilliant critic - firm but fair.
I'm on the editing of chapter 19 (out of over 100)and five parts, and describing four of the boys who become members of Jeannie's gang. I'm describing their characters, and their families and why they're drawn to her. Tricky. When I'm struggling and feel a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing, that's when I blog it. And that does help. There are so many good people on Facebook and other social media sites, particularly authors/writers, the feedback I receive is often excellent and very encouraging!
So that's what I'm doing now. Is anyone else doing anything monumental, writing wise? I'd love to hear from you, so please do contact me and perhaps we can share notes.
