So, here I am, plodding along. The story has grown and developed a life of it’s own, which I’m pleased about. It isn’t quite what I imagined when I first started out, but it feels more substantial now. My main character, Edith, is more her own person rather than the idea of the person she was when I first began.
I’m not quite finished, but I’ve entered the first 5,000 words in the Mslexia Novel Competition.
Why oh why have I done this before I’ve written the final chapters? I can’t really answer that. I just felt like it was ready for a bit of fresh air. I’ve also settled on a title after weeks of getting a blank whenever I thought about it. It’s called Edith’s Questions. At least for now. And I like that because it’s simple and it’s exactly what the novel is all about 🙂
