#61 – 3 Chapters please


I met Chris Binchy yesterday and he said I have a great ability to write. Said my writing was funny, intelligent and very topical. Can you imagine me – sitting across the table from him – writer in residence in Dun Laoighaire, 5 published books and nephew to the great icon Maeve Binchy!

Honest to god it was the highlight of the last six months meeting him. But I was nervous – said stupid (trying to be funny) things and talked way too much.

Chris said I now need to start writing the first three chapters of my book. Use the blog as my starting point.

To give an agent the best idea of who I am a Synopsis is grand and will give them a flavour of my writing. But 3 chapters will leave them in no doubt of my writing skills and the tone, pace and humour of what I can write.

So the blank page awaits. Scarey. Exciting. Potentially life changing!

Bring it on!

    I can bond with you Jeanie. Went through similar experience myself this year. A lot a spare time on my hands so I’ve just started a blog. Still a work in progress but rather good fun. Good luck!
