Haven't posted for a while. You know what that means!
But, actually, things begin to look up. A bit.
I've just had notes back on my second draft (which was set in a hospital, but, otherwise, had almost nothing in common with the first draft). Promisingly, it looks as though the third draft might not need to be utterly, completely, totally different from its predecessor. Still a lot of changes required, of course, but not a complete reinvention.
I'd call that progress!
