Editing with Barnsley Writers
Another thing that's happened during the past few weeks is that I ran a workshop on editing and rewriting for Barnsley Writers Group. There were some great questions ranging from the very philosophical - 'What is a book?' - to the much more practical - 'How do you manage the pace of scenes?' They're clearly a very dedicated and talented group of writers, and I always enjoy meeting other people who share my fascination with stories. The handouts (available from the Barnsley Writers blog) only scratch the surface of what we covered, but one of them lists useful resources to follow up, so if you want to find out more, grab that one and pick out the books that interest you.
