Mansfield Manor: It’s a wrap!
After a long two months of writing, I’ve finally finished my initial draft and first edit of The Murder at Mansfield Manor!
It’s been a slow boil for Mansfield Manor these past few weeks, with my participation in the Melbourne Marathon taking a lot my attention away from writing. It feels good to be at a place where the storyline is consistent, the characters developed and the themes clear.
Now it’s on to a bit of user testing! And then a bit more editing. I’m pleased with my decision to change the setting and core characters somewhat this time – it’s made for a very different scenario which challenges the protagonist and moves him out of his comfort zone.
The lesson? Take a risk! It’s totally worth it.
