Margaret Mayo, Romance Author


Re-write

Hurrah, my re-write is finished. It’s been a big challenge but I’ve finally come to the end – and a good thing about it is that it’s longer than the original. I always have trouble making my books long enough. Right from the early days of my writing career I could always finish them at about Chapter 7. I’m having to force myself to delve more deeply into the characters, into their thoughts and emotions, and hopefully my books are stronger for it.

I shall leave it now until Monday when I’ll give it its final read through before e-mailing it to my editor. She rang the other day to see how I was doing. I felt guilty because it’s taken me so long. OK, I had two holidays in the middle of it but is that an excuse? Which is more important, my writing or my holidays? The answer is both. Because holidays are invaluable research. (At least that’s what I tell myself)

Next Thursday my DH and I are going to London. I’m going to an author luncheon on Friday and a Mills & Boon author drinks party afterwards. (where I’ll meet my editor – and I couldn’t face her if I hadn’t finished my book!!!) But one of the highlights of our trip will be going to see China’s Terracotta Army exhibition at the British Museum. It starts today I believe and tickets have been flying out. My DH in particular is looking forward to this.
