My Works in Progress

Update

I've posted on 'Cutting it Fine' for those fellow writers who are members. I can't quite make up my mind whether I am pleased with my agent's comments or a really despondent. Still - at least she thinks the Cuckoo is a 'jolly good story'. So that can't be bad.

I'd just like to know who makes up all these rules about genre.

Byesie bye for now. Still, it's all part of being a writer, isn't it. No pain, no gain!

Your agent's comments are all positive Annie. I know there's still work to do but hey - you've come this far!
Have a breather... then get back in there:-)

Lane said...

That sounds bossy. You know what I mean:-)

Debs said...

It's a long hard slog, this writing lark.

I'll go and have a read now.x

Karen said...

It's always a shock (to me anway!) when you realise that writing the novel is only the beginning of the hard work!

At least there were positive comments to work on, which can only be good :o)

HelenMHunt said...

Karen is so right - it is only the beginning to write the bloomin' thing! You are so far down the road though - nearly there xxx

Tam said...

Don't be despondent, good novels are crafted, not written :-)

It's a long road, Annie, but don't let anyone or anything put you down. You never expected it to be easy, did you? And when your book is published, then comes the effort to promote it and make sure it sells well. My book launched a month ago and my life's gone mad. So far this week I've done a book signing in Bath, attended a crime writers' event in Cambridge, given a talk to a lovely group of people, and tomorrow I'm off to London for a meeting, then at an arts centre to give another talk. On Friday I'm meeting a journalist, Saturday another book signing... and so it goes on. It's very time consuming, but I love meeting readers. It's a great thrill reading reviews on amazon and signing books in the bookshops! But the real buzz is the writing. So hang on, Annie. However long it takes. And don't stop writing.

Leigh Russell said...

Perhaps I should have mentioned, Cut Short is the first in a new series of crime thrillers. You can read about it out on amazon - I'd love to hear what you think of it if you have time to read it.

Well - I'm impressed with how much you write. i realise with shame I haven's blogged since january.

We're all out of time, this is how we find how it all unwinds
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
We're all out of time, this is how we find how it all unwinds
The sacrifice is never knowing

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

I thank the lord that I've got you
And you've got me too
And every time I think of it
I pinch myself 'cause
I don't believe it's true
That someone like you

I will not make
The same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break
The way you did, you fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

I've cried myself to sleep

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Everything changes
But beauty remains
Something so tender
I can't explain
Well I maybe dreamin'
But 'till I awake
Can we make this dream last forever
And I'll cherish all the love we share

How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes

I'm sitting here
Thinking bout
How I'm gonna do without
You around in my life and how am I
I goin' get by
I ain't got no days
Just lonely nights
You want the truth
Well girl I'm not alright
Feel out of place and out of time
I think I'm gonna lose my mind

I must be crazy now
Maybe I dream too much
But when I think of you
I long to feel your touch

To whisper in your ear
Words that are old as time
Words only you would hear
If only you were mine

And you see the things they never see
All you wanted I could be
Now you know me
And I'm not afraid

And I want to tell you who I am
Can you help me be a man?
They can't break me
As long as I know who I am

When smiling feels like
I must wear this lonely mask
It hurts deep inside And I just cannot hide
That there's anguish at the thought
That we should have to part

Made a million mistakes
Am I to late
There's a storm in my head
And it rains on my bed
When you're not here
I'm not afraid of dying
But I'm afraid of losing you

How blue can I get?
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart
Billion words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now you know I'll be loving you still

The nights are so lonely the days are so sad and
I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me
