Wow, that Deborah Copaken Kogan article is a depressing truth.

@Miss Cole Heh, I wrote some stuff as a teen that I was worried to share in case I got locked up in a mental ward. It all helped me get rid of the bad junk in my head, though.
I'm going to have to go read the sequel to 'The Knife Of...' after this interview. But I'm still slightly annoyed with him for that cliffhanger!

@AdeleFS Hi Adele, thanks for the quick response! I'll definitely be submitting. :) Sorry about the e-mail problem. I have no idea what would be causing that, I'll look into it.

Fantastic interview! Laura's enthusiasm is contagious. :)
It seems like the photo of the "giant Taschen book" has been accidentally missed out though?

@Tromaras I hope so. :) Once it gets published it's out of my hands, but I'd love to have another book out in Greece!

@Roan Weterings Thank you Roan! I'll have to come up with a blue haired character, I don't think I've got one (but blue, especially cyan, seems to be a reoccurring theme in my clothing designs).
Inking is fun! What tools are you using? I've tried inking with Indian Ink and a brush, Staedtler pigment liners, a Pentel brush pen and Sharpies. I think I like the pigment liners best because I can choose when I want a thicker line.
Do you have a DeviantArt account?

@squidfather Thanks John! I've been looking back at your comments to keep me motivated, this revision is kicking my arse. But I'm going to get it done, because it is now my destiny to fulfil the prophecy! Haha. :)

@Colin D Smith Thank you Colin! You two are amazing, I really appreciate the optimistic thoughts. :) And I'm so happy to see the alien in Victorian London story going places! :)Have you seen the Doctor Who Christmas special yet? It seems like the kind of episode you'd love.

@Miss Cole Thank you! I'll need it!
@Colin D Smith Thanks Colin, same to you. I was happy enough with the book reviewer/book blogger label because hey, if I write and call myself a writer I can review and call myself a reviewer. No point putting false barriers in my way -- I don't need any qualifications other than to be able to write a balanced review. It felt right to claim the title when I started getting a lot of review copies and reviewing became both expected and a serious drain on my time.But I never anticipated what a minefield the writer-reviewer combo was, and I just can't be bothered with the drama. But I want to keep my critical skills sharp -- Janet Reid's advice for writers to be able to critically review work was what started me seriously reviewing in the first place -- so I'll be doing it more casually from here on.
@Colin D Smith Heh, I really hope so. This revision is exhausting! It better be worth the suffering, haha.

@Miss Cole I like that interpretation, it fits very well. :) Travelling to Stornoway comes with a lot of family baggage, and I spend a lot of my time there on-guard and just waiting for the inevitable moment when things go to hell. It's a very high-anxiety environment for me (as much as I try to focus on the awesome scenery).

@luciesmoker Oooh, that's a great idea! Not sure if I could handle the embarassment, though! :O Also, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's much appreciated. <3

@Miss Cole Yeah, it's a lot easier to get fatigued when editing compared to drafting! And godo luck with all your writerly activities, as always. :)
@Miss Cole Thank you! Looking forward to posting more, just need to charge my camera and convert them for web.

Woo, I can reply now that Livefyre sorted my comments! Definitely agreed on your advice re: a good but flexible outline, I find it can all work out as long as I know how it ends and have a rough idea of the big events ahead.
