It feels like a huge step to start this blog. I've called it furious writer, because I am furious, and frustrated and fed up.
Furious because I have to write fast and because I keep reading accounts of writers' lives that mention lit festivals, which are always held when I have to be at work, and the horrors of holidays in Tuscany, when there is no time to write. Holidays are the only time I have to write!
Frustrated because my agent's just decided to give up her agency.
Fed up,with trying to get my work published and especially with agents who send stuff back unread.
