An invitation

A couple of you kind folk have suggested my blog's a good way to answer ongoing questions about my writing.

That's fine by me.  If you do have any questions, just get in touch via the contacts page on the site - www.thetvdetective.com/contact.html  and I'll see what I can do to answer them - as honestly as possible, within the bounds of taste and decency!

I'm just starting the final edits of The Judgment Book now.  If I'm honest, this is not by any means my favourite part of the writing process.  I like building up ideas, letting them grow, then setting them all down in the first draft of a new book.

Now, this might well sound daft, but although I already know what's going to happen (at least in theory) it can feel like I'm also reading the story as I go along.  Sometimes I even get frustrated at the slow pace of my writing because I want to know what happens next!

Odd, eh?!  But that's how it is with me.

Anyway, as I was saying, that means the editing process sometimes feels like lots of quibbling over the dots and commas of precise punctuation, but I know it's important and has to be done, so if you'll excuse me, I'll be getting back to it...
