Dear Auntie Romaniac,
I’ve got a practical dilemma this week rather than an imaginative one. In the writing basement is the prequel to Little Boxes, which came out last year. It’s called Moondancing, and it’s my first baby, started in the first place as a one-chapter assignment at college, developed over the years for fun and finally licked into some sort of shape and sent to the NWS. It then went back under the bed as, frankly, it was awful.
Now it’s been revamped, edited and generally given a spring clean and it’s been accepted for publishing. The problem is that the dates, ages, character details etc don’t always exactly match and flow into the next part of the story.
Where do I begin? LB is in ebook format only – copies of it and Moondancing are on my Kindle, but can I do a proper job without printing them both out in full? Research and checking finer details are my two (very) weak spots).
