Today is my official day of retirement from writing full-blown novels. Well, almost!
I have done the reread and the read of my last contribution to the literary world.
Tonight, or first thing tomorrow, I’ll parcel it up and send it to my proofreading lady to deal with the commas, with’s and but’s as she sees fit. Then, when I get it back, I’ll read it again before sending the manuscript to my agent to see what she thinks of it and what she can do with it.
It was certainly the most exacting of all the four I’ve written over that 100,000-word target I like to set myself and stands as the longest at 115,668.
When I send it to the agent I’ll expose its title and if ever I can compose an intelligent, well-crafted synopsis I’ll post that too.
