Posted in My Writing Journey, What's New?


I spent this Saturday editing my synopsis (again) to fit onto one page. I don’t know why I struggled so much because when I looked at it this weekend, it all seemed to make sense at last.

Certain sentences I had included were irrelevant, but it is so hard to make cuts as you want to tell whoever it is you are sending your manuscript to, about all the good bits. I wonder if this is because in the back of our minds, we are worried that they will never ask for the full manuscript thereby never getting to read our work of genius so we try to lure them in with as much of the good stuff as we can.

So let’s be confidant in ourselves and just let the agent/publisher know what happens in the story and that really ought to be enough to grab their attention and make them desperate to read the whole novel. And if they don’t, then they are the wrong agent/publisher for you…..Or, your book stinks and you had better start again! 😉



I have been a Personal Trainer for about 23 years and I still love training and the buzz it gives me but writing has always been a part of my life. I think I wrote my first book at the age of 10. My grandmother said I would be a novelist one day and she was right - as all grandmothers often are! I live with my boyfriend Carl, we have 2 huskies who make us laugh every day, except when pulling us into bushes to chase after squirrels! I have also written a Diet and Fitness book for women over 40.
