Graduate Comments

Consultation – 3

“In my consultation, I hoped for a discussion about the novel and how to get it to the point where it gets done. I’ve been trying, it seems, the same sort of beginning for seven or eight drafts and while I can get a good bit into the novel, it keeps falling like a cake in an oven when there’s a loud noise. We spoke at length about various options and how to make the story, overall, more active and what pitfalls to look out for.”
