I’m pleased to report that after a few stops and restarts, I finally took the plunge and finished the first draft of my crime novel. Now the really hard work begins! I’m loving my characters and setting (Queanbeyan and the Far South Coast of NSW) so it will be good to get it out to beta readers over Christmas and see what they think.
In between finishing the first draft and starting editing, I’ve written a synopsis for a post-apocalyptic novel set on the Snowy River in southern New South Wales. Thus one has been a long time coming so I’m looking forward to working on that next year while I’m querying the crime novel.
