J is also for joy – yay! SHE LIKED IT!

Yesterday evening I got unexpectedly early feedback on my 1000 word novel excerpt (plus commentary detailing where I am so far, how it’s changed etc).

And Yaaaay! My sci-fi/fantasy-loathing tutor liked it!

‘The strengths of this piece include a definite hook’

‘I loved it’

‘Okay, going to give you a big compliment here: I was actually briefly disappointed not to have more. In a marking situation, that is rare’

Just had to share the joy, really. She gave some really good feedback on potential editing/revising to make it better, so I’ve come away confident that I can improve the beginning and go on to submit a really good 4000 word start for the examinable piece (which is worth 50% of this year’s course mark, so the fate of my Diploma pretty much rests on that).

  1. Congratulations on the review. I’m so glad I found your blog. I’m stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.

    • Thanks Sylvia.
      I will be doing a lap around some A to Z blogs tomorrow – and yours is on my list. Have looked but not commented yet! 🙂 Intrigued by the loglines and see some good A to A topics there.
