Anyway enough of all that. I've started writing another novel. No working title, at least not yet.
I got about 20,000 words in when I realized that I had no idea where to go from there so I stopped and got out the old notepad.
That's where I am now, summarising the chapters and working out the structure. So at what stage do I give up on this one? Well the last story made it to first draft so I'm hopeful that this time, I may even edit it. Woo! etc.
