I’m fascinated by the tiny differences between a book that works and a book that doesn’t. For me, I can tell which of my stories are well-told and which barely scrape par but, while I’m writing, I can’t really tell if a story is going to be good or not.
Another strange thing is, my judgement of what is a good book bears little relation to which of my books sell well. I guess that is why agents and booksellers prefer ‘genre’ books, because they have a ready-made audience.
Me, I just keep writing.
Four weeks and one day to go before I send in the script for Jago.
