Comment to 'Taking the Plunge'
  • Hi Rachel, first of all well done on getting this far! And your novel sounds really intriguing. As I’ve never written a query letter before, I’m no where near there yet, I’m not sure I’m the best of help. It read quick and easy though, which I consider an asset as in this day and age nobody seems to take the time anymore for anything. If I could have anything to advise is that I would  mention Kelly’s name directly in the first alinea; I got sort of confused with the assistant psychologist and then the mentioning of Kelly asking myself if they were one and the same person..

    Good luck! C

    • Haha, well, lockdown might be your friend! I don't think I'd have written this if I'd not been confined to my house for most of the year!

      I've not come across that series before, I'll have to have a look. Hopefully triggered in a good way :)

      • Triggered in a very good way, because of that simple world “filter” which presents a scary or exciting future (depends how you look at it:) and because to my opinion you write in a flow,  so I read on.  Years and years is a British series with Emma Thompson and deals with the immediate future. It had me glued to the screen and I bingewatched it three times :))  it might not be your thing though, that’s the lovely thing about taste, we are many!

        • Hmmm Emma Thompson, eh? She's is awesome. I'll have to check it out.

          You know, I'd never thought about the word 'filter' that way before, thank you. Isn't it fascinating how words can mean different things to different people?
