What Publishing a Novel has Taught Me About Writing

If you’ve been following me on Twitter and/or Goodreads, you might’ve heard about my debut Sci-Fi novel, The Bureau of Time – and if you haven’t, well, it’s my first published novel and responsible for many late nights over the last year. It’s now available on Amazon and Kobo, thanks to independent digital publisher, Fontaine.

In previous posts, and in the book’s acknowledgements, I touched on how The Bureau of Time has changed my life as a writer, but in this post, I thought I’d explain just how much I’ve grown as a writer in such a short period of time – and how you can apply these same tips to your own writing!

777 Challenge

The lovely Heather of SemiLegacy has tagged me for the 777 Challenge, where I share 7 lines from the 7th page of my current WIP, and tag 7 other bloggers to do the same!

These lines come from The Bureau of Time, my current YA SF manuscript!

The monsters stepped forward, steel knives held down low.

She turned and bolted towards the far end of the field, her feet sinking into the artificial turf and the slush of melted snow. It felt like she was running through thick oil. Every step took more effort than the last, her legs burning, her lungs screaming for oxygen. She kept her eyes on the horizon, that strip of blue, the color of freedom—

Another burst of energy hurled her backwards and she hit the ground, her head smacking into the turf. Red spots danced before her vision.

And now to challenge other people!
