Many of you will know already that writing is my first love – it always has been and always will be. The more I travel, the more I want to document these adventures which allows me to combine my two greatest passions.
On Saturday, I travelled to London to take part in Foyles Discovery Day where I was able to pitch the novel I’ve been working on to a literary agent from Curtis Brown or Conville and Walsh, followed by a mini Q&A session with another agent.
For me, this is the height of excitement – and a real test of skill.
I decided to be extra prepared, so I put together the synopsis of my novel, printed out the first page and packed my bag the night before so I was all ready to go. Being me, I was secretly looking forward to the train journey, the ability to sit down and crack on with stuff I’d been meaning to do for a while, or continue reading the irresistible A Hundred Pieces of Me by Lucy Dillon – a great read I highly recommend.
