A new character.. but will he be lovable?

Elsewhere I’ve posted about writing and this is the month I’m getting really serious about my novel. This is the fifth and final draft. It’s true what everyone says: with your first novel you keep tweaking it because it keeps getting better.

Last week, just when I was about to give up in despair, I had a helpful coffee with a fellow writer friend. She helped me add some complication to a plot that was sounding as staid and boring as tomorrow’s soap opera episode: Insert title of American, Egyptian, or Turkish soap here.

I haven’t yet written the scenes so I will keep it under wraps for now. But suffice to say this article in THE INDEPENDENT confirmed the introduction of my new character/plot line!

Have any thoughts of your own on English men and romance? Am fact piling….
