I’ve Completed a Rough Draft of The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden

 
 
The first draft – the rough draft – of The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden is finished. And it’s rough! But I have a pile of paper, instead of the unrelentingly empty screen. This is all good.

Now comes the real work, revision – I almost feel I should capitalize it. But I love editing and revising, filling in the blanks, deepening the characters, adding – I hope – the telling detail that will draws you into the story.

In the meantime, all in one day, I reduced the number of To Do piles on my study floor from fifteen to two. It’s really quite a pretty carpet…

And very soon I head for Port Joli, on Nova Scotia’s south shore, with three other writers, for a week-long retreat by the beach. I promise I’ll work. Some of the time.
