Back what seemed a million years ago, at the fabulous RNA Conference in Greenwich, a group of us decided, after having consumed some rather large quantities of white wine, that we should do a group blog together.
Well, the resolution lasted longer than the hangovers, and that group blog is The Heroine Addicts, in which writers Susanna Kearsley, Anna Louise Lucia, Brigid Coady, Christina Courtenay, Liz Fenwick and I write about various aspects of writing, romance, and heroineism.
I’m posting today for the first time, about why not being perfect isn’t so bad—a topic that’s on my mind a lot right now, as I’m trying to whip this messy manuscript into shape.
My progress on that, by the way—I’ve decided to trash chapters four through six, and lots of chapter seven, and right now I’m writing what’s going to go there instead. 3000 words yesterday, and hopefully 1000 today. It’s easier to write these new scenes, I think, as I’m done with all the inventing, and it’s just fitting stuff in. Right now my heroine is doing a jigsaw puzzle. Yes, it’s action-packed!!
