  1. When I finished the work in July and only went back to it Last week so have had a good rest from it. Once I have completed this present edit I will put it aside again for a few weeks.
  2. Thanks Spaulding I have ordered it. Once I have finished going through the filter words I intend to leave it a while before a final, final edit. Then it is the dreaded synopsis.
  3. Johne I am amazed at all these articles you find. They're terrific. Thank you.
  4. Yes thanks Nicholas. I did an exercise cutting one filter word down which cropped up at an alarming frequency in my wip. It has now been significantly reduced. I have not.come across the Beta for windows so may take a look at that.
  5. Like the sound of the boot camp. Wish we had something similar here in the UK
  6. This really helpful. I have used a similar framework which uses the letter W to plot the protagonist emotional and action journeys. Each ideally should mirror the other with one creating the cause or impact on the other. The idea being that the protagonist has changed as a result by the end of their journey. You can do this with other characters and intwin their joureny into the main character.
  7. Thanks everyone. I started working on this over the past few days. I was amazed at how times I repeated.some words. Thanks to the wonders of Word's find and replace tool I managed to reeduce many of them.

  9. Don't hate them at all. Good examples of show don't tell. Although abit over written for mt taste.
  10. I have finished the revision of my WIP. The next step is to go through the hard copy with a red pen for delete and green for change. This is a final edit before it goes for copy edit. It has grown from 75k to 88k as I have developed one character's story more. Not massive and within the recommended word count for thrillers. What would you be looking for to cure or change?
  11. Great article. I have always written. It is part of my DNA but there have been long periods when I have not pick up a pen. The day or family have had to come first and rightly so. I think I am a better writer for this. Certainly what I am writing now is far better than previous work.
