So I just got feedback from the publisher who was reading the book.
The sad news is that they’ve decided it’s not quite ready for publication yet but this came with some amazing and formative feedback.
Right now I’m putting everything I’ve got into getting the thesis submitted before October so I can deal with the other stuff, then I’m going to come back to it with new eyes.
Just in case, I’m applying for a week-long intesive on memoir at my old friend Varuna. I imagine writing there is Summer will be very different to Winter.
As my insightful PhD supervisor said: ‘Drat, drat, drat … but there’s more than one way to skin a cat, Angela!’
