She said what?

So a couple of people said to me: “Why would you write a post about being afraid to let people read your work, and then the very next post is an excerpt?”

Easy! Three people who read and/or write romance all the time already judged the excerpt in a competition so I have confidence that the scene works. It may not be perfect but it works.

I read somewhere, I can’t remember where, that it takes half a million words before you come anywhere near discovering that magic thing the mysterious ‘they’ call ‘voice’.

I think (I just crossed everything) that I’m starting to find mine. Certainly when I rewrite, I can hear myself saying “Christina wouldn’t say that… or she wouldn’t do that.”

I’m taking that as a promising step!
