I’ve just completed the first draft of a thriller, Ghost of a Memory. It started out as a short story and has run to 13,330 words – that is not short! And where on earth am I going to submit it? There’s some editing to do, obviously, and a few technical police procedure questions to check – I’m not very clued up on those – but it’s a satisfying feeling to finish it. I’ve been living with these characters for a while now; the power – their future in my hands!
