Phew! I am done writing I think. And it’s time to submit my efforts to an agent. It has taken me quite some months to revise (and revise again) this, my first and on-line, draft. Apart from the obvious typos, there were – on many occasions – glaring faults with plot logic as well as gaping time gaps. I seem, also, to have yakked on far too much about gardening (my real occupation) as well as the historical situation in Kosovo!

It is a mission in itself to prepare a proper submission to an agent. The covering letter takes much thought and care, as does the brief summary and synopsis. The experience of penning the latter has given me the opportunity to ask myself if I really know what the story is all about! I have also had to prepare a writer’s CV and some testimonials. Thank you Josna and Peter for your glowing tributes to my efforts at dark comedy.

So we will see. I am as ready now as I ever will be. And if it still not my time, then I will just carry on!

Thank you for your readership, whoever you are, out in the ether.

Yours
