Day 3: A workshop on ‘pace, plot and structure’ followed by a session on ‘synopsis’ writing – both vital sessions from which I gain clarity each time I encounter an explanation. Afterwards I completed an exercise, and coupled with my one to one discussion yesterday, ended up with an improved plan for my project - the benefit of attending a weekend retreat is right there!
Now, I just need to write the rest of the book.
The final word count for the weekend: 8052 words – slightly short of my intended goal, but I’m pleased with the progress made. I’ve achieved a hefty word count plus, sorted out my ‘flaky’ character and gained a fresh plan for the rest of the novel.
My main focus for February is to complete the first draft. I've received my copy edits for a previous book from my editor, but they’ll be completed in the coming days.
