In these changed circumstances, when lots of people have lots of novelist-type-time (inside, in yesterday’s T-shirt, in front of a screen with words on it, in doubt), I’m going to add something else to the usual Writing and Shit posts.
First, I’m going to do a Problem Pages/Agony Aunt type blog. I think I can probably give useful answers to three questions from three writers. If it goes well, or there’s a good response, I’ll do another.
Are you a writer who is in the shit with a particular story or novel? Send me your question, and I’ll try to give some helpful, practical advice. Be specific but try to keep it under 100 words.
Your question can be about technical matters, work routine, psychological attitude, anything. (Well, not about how does someone start to write? This series is about getting out of the shit once you’ve got into it.)
Please post your questions below, and I’ll make a selection and put up the three answers next week (Friday 27th March).
And, perhaps, who knows, the answer to your question may already be up in one of the previous Writing and Shit posts.
