My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

W.I.P Revisited

Some of you may recall my post entitled Sacrificial Manuscripts, well having written 34,000 words of my W.I.P and having gotten some variable responses from people who have read the first 2 chapters, I decided to follow my own advice and put it away for a couple of months and see whether I still liked what I'd written when I re-read it afresh.

Today I started re-reading and it soon became clear that perhaps what I had written was not as exciting as I had first imagined. I have extracted an excerpt from Chapter 8 to share with you all. I wonder what you make of this scene?

I have always loved to write (but usually non-fiction stuff) and expected to be able to write a publishable novel or short story almost immedately.

Now I think I just need to keep writing and reading until something clicks.
This is from chapter eight. Check out First Page Blogfest for the opening of Chapter One.
