Feedback is hard even when it’s good

Caught up with Jo Chipperfield this week to go over the manuscript, and the feedback was amazing.

Which is hard and easy and exciting and terrifying.

It feels like I’m on the cusp of something amazing.

The current draft is at 86,000 words and Jo’s most exciting words were: ‘This is ready to go to the publishers (or you could fix just a few more things)’

She used words like ‘extraordinary’ and ‘immersive’, told me when she cried and when her heart wouldn’t stop racing.

And then she handed me this to go home and play with:

With this and the last draft from Shady (‘Wow! Wow! Wow!’ and ‘there’s a fair few typos’) I’m confident that in a few weeks I’ll be sending the best version of the book I can off to the publishers.
