Ah! Found! The Missing Ingredient!

I knew there was something missing from my manuscript, it’s been a major stumbling block for best part of 15 months – with so much happening in my life this past year or so, I was blaming that.

So, what was missing? I’m embarrassed to say! Moods and emotions are a strong point with me, I write in a way that lets you get to know my characters well. You know and understand what makes them tick.

So what the heck happened? Action happened. I got so tied up in the action that I had neglected to spell out the driving force behind it.

All this time I was poking it with a stick trying to get it to move and wondering what was lacking… Grrr… (I know, I think I’ll blame everything that’s been happening in my life for the past year or so…) 😀


Yes, yes, relax, I’m on it now.

Cheers everyone! 😀

    I know this problem well. Action’s fun to write and it moves the plot along so well that you forget what’s happening in people’s guts. I get that all the time. Good luck!

      Hi Matt – Thanks! I agree. Reading through this stuff, I was scratching my head, thinking, “There’s something missing…” It’s so easy to live in the action. 🙂
