Conor O’Neill, the hero of The Golden Brick is being fleshed out. I’m still waiting for a eureka moment when I say yes, that’s him. At the moment sticking various bits of scaffolding around him and seeing what emerges. I have a good idea of who and what he is, but I would like to make that more tangible.

back to editing ‘the golden brick’ and making decisions as to the tone. I’ll be making my main character more desperate and underhand and bumping up the humour. Had a good writers group meeting last week and the recommendation was to keep the story in the ‘now’ and not do timeshifting which is something I have done a bit in this book. It’ll be a hefty re-write, but needs doing.
