How is your summer shaping up?

on June 29, 2015







Saturday 27 June was the last day of my course with fellow students on the MPhil Writing at Pontypridd. I submitted my transfer paper to PhD for discussion to help with preparations  for the viva which is likely to take place in the autumn. I have learnt so much during the two years of part-time study, particularly about plot and structure of a novel.

The Winchester Writers’ Festival was held the previous weekend, so it’s been a busy time. I’ve been madly rewriting the first three chapters of my novel ready to resubmit to a couple of people I met at the event. I’m also involved in preparations for the Poole Festival of Words at the end of July, so that’s enough to keep me focused for the next few weeks.

How is your summer shaping up?

  1. Good luck with the chp rewrites. I think chapter 2 is the one to focus on. Good luck too with the transfer.

    Good luck with the rewrites. I’m watching the news too and thinking I need to reflect some of this in the Corfu novel! It was fine while we were there.

  4. Every rewrite is a step towards publication! That’s my motto. It should be every writer’s!
