Today I thought I might finish the fourth draft of a novel I am writing, but I didn’t. I’ll finish it tomorrow. I have been so masticated by it for the last four or five months that I have not written anything about writing on the blog lately, I’ve just been writing instead. Not that I know anything about writing. But, as you know, ignorance has never stopped me expounding in the past. At least I’ve tried this – rather tragically a few times before. This is my third attempt at a publishable novel. I’ve finished two others. I was quite happy with the results but mine was a minority view. I’ve learned you can’t really argue with someone’s gut reaction that what you have written is bollocks.
