I'm going away for a bit...

Pained as it may be to say this I'm going to put the novel writing on hold for a bit. I feel as though I've lost my direction and creativity - and plus I'm doing a Post Grad in Magazine journalism in the summer which I know will be very hectic so I simply dont have time to write.

When I first started to write novels I thought that I really had to rush into and get it finished ASAP so I could get an agent and get it published. But now I just want to do it in good time, write it when I have the time and enjoy it. So I think I'll come back to it when I'm ready and I think I'll know when I'm ready again. I may start a completely different story altogether - who knows - but hopefully I'll be happier to write it when I have a job I'm happier in and I'm doing it becuase I want to - not to get a publishing deal and be rich. etc, etc...

Good luck with your journeys everyone - Its been cool getting to know you all and I'm sure we'll all bump into each other in the Literary world in the not to distant future......

Bye x

Fair enough. And timely, as I'm doing the rounds today in a semi-official capacity for the novel racers. If you change your mind in the next week, please leave a comment on Kate/Wordgirl's blog to say so, and add the new novel racers to your sidebar. If we don't hear from you, we'll take you out of the race at the end of next week. If that's the case, you will always be welcome to return, again by leaving a comment on Kate's blog or sending her an email. And either way - best of luck!

Hello again, apparently some people have been upset by my last message, I don't know if you are one of them but if you are please do accept my apologies. This subject has been under discussion at the last two coffee breaks and we thought we'd come up with a good way forward, but sometimes things come across differently than they are meant... there was no intention of wagging fingers or telling anyone off, just an attempt to find out who wanted to stay and who didn't as our sidebars are getting very long! I'm really very sorry if my comment upset you, and please do email me if this apology feels insufficient.
