Well, I didn't get through to the top four - but considering the shock I received when I got in the top twenty-one - I'm not complaining! This has been an absolutely fantastic experience. Wendy S. Marcus is now my new hero!! Her mentoring, was spot on and stretched my writing muscle completely out of shape; into a new sassy, flirty voice that makes sense to me (it didn't to start off with because I didn't recognise it). That might sound a little weird but VOICE has been one of my toughest challenges because I couldn't see it on the page.
Over a thousand writers put themselves out there with the first chapter and I give a standing ovation to all.
