I sent off my first 5 pages and synopsis for analysis and no doubt much red inking at Get Writing in February. 5 pages when they're double spaced doesn't add up to many words ... I had to edit hard to get as much of the opening plot line in as I could. I really like working to a tight structure, it makes you ensure every paragraph works hard to be included.
There's no time for nail-biting as I need to work on a synopsis for my most recent project which I'll be pitching in a 3 minute slot at the same conference ... I've just started writing chapter 4 and know how it's going to end, it's just the bit in the middle I need to work on. Will be working on some loose ideas for the next couple of novels in the series too... there will be steam coming out of the keyboard tonight :)
