I've finally finished the first draft of novel 2 and have emailed it to Lovely Agent.
Now the nail-biting, email-watching waiting begins again. If she doesn't like it I'll bloody shoot myself. Not really, but let's say I'm more realistic about the whole process this time round, and not quite as giddy with excitement as this time last year.
I'm going to miss my characters, though I'll no doubt be revisiting them in the edits. I've almost started to believe they were real.
I didn't realise there was an underlying theme to my story until I'd finished, which means I'm either a terrible writer or a wee bit simple, but nearly all my characters have dysfunctional parents which has affected their adult relationships.
It's nice to know there is a theme, and that it's not just a Very Silly Story - though it is that too of course.
Anyway, hello real world - I've missed you.
