Random thoughts

Shampoo should NOT be grey.

The people who make running shoes need to realise that joggers should feminine as well as comfortable.

When wearing a top that does up with a tie a double bow is recommended.

Women should have the right to make decisions about their own bodies.

I'm working on a rewrite - or at least I would be if I wasn't blogging instead.

It's interesting, the editor who requested the rewrite has submitted some really good and detailed feedback on what they do and don't like. I can understand all the points he's raised. The difficulty is translating this into the story.

He wants stronger characterisations - the trick is to tell as much as possible about the character and their motivation in as few as possible words - because I've also been told to cut back on the back story.

I've made a couple of passes through the ms now and I think it's better. I'm probably going to have to shelf for a week or two and then come back again.
