This was a brilliant day all round, not only did I get to read my first chapter out in front of enthusiastic listeners, encouraging judges, and inspiring writers, I also got to see the new Central Library in Liverpool (you should go, it’s beautiful). All ten writers had such amazing novel ideas and it’s very exciting as we will all be published in Writing on the Wall’s Firsts book, due out later in the year. The competition has given me the confidence I needed to believe in my novel and proceed full steam ahead!
Now…where’s my pen?!
