Where There Are No Eyes Category

Back at it.

Now that I’m no longer using my 5 year old MacBook Pro I have no excuses not to write, or in my current case, edit. So yeah, I’m back at it and having some time away has improved my capacity for seeing shit… like the opening chapter of September rain… That reminds me, I need […]

That Scary Moment When.

You upload your work to the internet for critique. It’s the first time you’ve let someone read your work, and I mean the only person whose eyes have seen this is you, and up load it to the interwebz.

Chapter One.

Below is the first chapter of my novel, ‘Where There Are No Eyes’.

Please read and critique. Be brutal but don’t be a dick about it. “I like it” or “I don’t like it” are pointless remarks. Why do you like it, why don’t you like it?

This is only a second draft running at 6.5 pages and 1384 words.

Where There Are No Eyes follows Detective Chief Inspector Robert Carter as he tries to solve a series of horrific murders while dealing with his own personal problems, a promise he shouldn’t have made, and bureaucratic nonsense.’

Enjoy.

Today (July 18th) I edited chapter 7 of ‘Where There Are No Eyes’ (formally Shadow of Doubt) which had a character whose purpose seemed a little pointless. He just seemed to be filling a hole and checking a minority box.

Editing: Redundant Information.

While editing chapter 3 last week I realised a lot of information in this chapter is mirrored in chapter 7. This basically means the information in chapter 7 is redundant and not really needed, except I need it there. I also need it in chapter 3.

Dilema.

Editing: Shadow of Doubt.

Shadow of Doubt is a crime story about Detective Chief Inspector Robert Carter who is trying to solve a series of horrific murders while dealing with his own personal problems, a promise he shouldn’t have made, and bureaucratic BS.

So yesterday I worked on chapters 1 and 2 of my second novel ‘Shadow of Doubt’ and today i’m starting on chapter 3 and I guess we’ll see how far I get. Hoping to work on chapter 4 too, but we’ll see.

And the Writing Goes On.

A few days ago I cracked my knuckles and started editing… Again. Yes I know I know that i’ve been editing this damn book for an age but I got distracted by life, and unemployment, and a new job, kinda, and time just seemed to get away from me and I left the book by […]
