Hey everyone. Good news. After five months of fighting with the beginning of Hooligans in Shining Armour, I’ve done it. Finally done it. I have conquered first chapters of my novel.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-8296-1344235778-6The rest of it has been done for months; it was just a matter of finding the right place to start. And believe me, it’s had many…many…many different starts. It’s now been fully critiqued and professionally edited. Ready to go!

Big props to all the many, many, many writers who helped me get here! Especially Kate Foster, who particularly helped me nail the beginning. Without them, I’d still be, oh God, don’t even want to imagine.

    Ditto on the congratulations! That’s fantastic! For me the issue is the muddle in the middle. This weekend I’m holed up with advice on story structure and a cork board to re-storyboard it. I hope to experience a similar celebratory state soon!
