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!’
So good you need to share it?

Angela J Williams, PhD, is a writer, illustrator and story teller from Wollongong, Australia.
She is the author of Snakes and Ladders: a memoir and host of the Deboning Power Podcast.
A writer, thinker and yeller, Angela Williams is mildly notorious for seeing problems and pointing them out. She’s tussled with Fred Nile in the Sydney Morning Herald, taken academia to task in the Guardian’s Anonymous Academic, gone to Crikey about the treatment of mentally ill women in prison, and most recently blown the whistle on dangerous risks in her (former) charity workplace. Angela does one thing really well – find problems and yell about them.

Bummer, good luck with the thesis. You can’t do it all at once. You are doing the work, Varuna sounds like a way forward. Best of luck. xxx
