  1. Hello,

    Since you’ve abandoned Tomorrow Will Come after giving us a few preview chapters, these two podcasts made me think of you:

    http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/how-to-write-a-novel.aspx [along with a lot of other advice, this one says to finish the ‘bad’ book before writing a good one. Though for you maybe this is not necessary since you’ve already finished at least one.]

    http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/how-to-podcast-a-book.aspx [and this one has the obvious-only-after-you’ve-thought-of-it advice about podcasting or otherwise serialising a book: Finish the book first.]

  2. Thanks, Angela.

    Yes, I think it’s important early on in one’s writing “career” to finish even the bad ones. That’s how, in my experience, a writer finds a voice. I’ve got about 20 completed projects behind me, however, so I tend not to waste too much time on novels that don’t feel right, you know.

    On serialising… I view it as testing the water more than serialising. I never make more than a few samples available online, and it’s always for critiquing/assessment purposes.

    Will definitely give them a listen, though! Cheers!
