I had to smile when I finally got to read Elle’s ms. She coughed a little, blushing slightly.
Yes, she wrote about sex, a beautiful love scene. Perfectly placed and executed. Nothing out of place. A surprising move from one of the characters…
‘I’ m not used to write so much about…’ she said.
‘But it fits the story,’ I replied.
And it does. As an other character from the story would say, ‘You are so English!’

This madness possessing me, the one that stops me in my tracks, forcing me to write, so compulsive and obsessive. The writer’s madness, striking at the most inopportune time, any time, any place, moments lost in time. ☆☆☆ Picture credits to the Dear One, he was trying to prove his point.

Do you have a timetable you stick to rigidly as Roald Dhal used to?
Or are you an undisciplined writer?
Do you revise as you write, or do you write your first draft and then go back?

So, come and let us know. We’re waiting to hear from you.
With thanks to novelist Elle Amberley, ( @ElleAmberley )
