The Manuscript is Going to Work


“In Line of Fire” will be the sequel to my WW1 novel, “In Foreign Fields”. I am now fifty thousand words into the first draft. I’ve reached that “Wow!” point which I assume all novelists experience when they realise that the novel is actually going to work rather well. All the previous effort is going to pay off. There’s a lot more to do, even before I start editing, but I am happy that it’s going to be worthwhile. It makes the writing off the later chapters a work of pure pleasure and excitement. Isn’t this one of the reasons why we write?
