Like an idiot, I asked if the CWC crew would be willing to do a ‘full novel’ read through–which involves handing in:
1. full draft of novel (like the name implies)
2. list of agents I am considering submitting to
3. rough draft of the synopsis that I would hand in to said agents
4. copy of query letter for said agents
I was hoping I would be a lot further along on finishing the draft than I am. Looking at the mess of paper in front of me I have another five chapters to do before I even touch at the query/synopsis process–something I’ve never actually tried before.
One of those chapters is the last chapter, which has always been the hardest one.
Here’s the good news. I do think it’s better than the first draft. And it’s always a plus to be progressing.
