The Unexpected Benefits of Surgery

Being part of a writing group means exposing your work to the scalpels of your peers - at least it should be. If it isn't, look for a proper writing group, not a mutual admiration society. Your ego's already so inflated that you believe other people want to read your stuff, so it doesn't need further pumping.

It was my turn t'other day to add my views to the Renegade Writers blog. I was late of course, as everyone expected...

I just wanted to say that I love your book. I'm about a quarter way in. laughed at some bits too. I think Cubby is brill. Look forward to reading the rest.

Thank you Judith! Cubby caused me a few problems - he was never intended to be that pivotal a character, but he's just too big and loud to push onto the sidelines. In the end I had to let him do his own thing - he's bigger than me.
