Hi All. Nice to be here. My name is Jean. I'm from the Caribbean but resident in London. I'm working on a novel that has elements of history and magic realism. Editing is a nightmare and I am hoping for advice.

    • Welcome, Jean.  Your novel sounds fascinating, with that mix of elements.  Good luck with it.  Yes, editing is a bit of a nightmare but you can rely on good advice on Townhouse - and, of course, from the video courses.

      • Blakeney - Many thanks. How can I access Townhouse?

        • Mention the word magic, and I'm interested.

          Hello Jean. You'll find many helpful people here to advise you. Harry Bingham did a quite brutal editing job on a volunteer's piece of work on a JW webinar earlier this year. Worth watching.

          Looking forward to seeing some of your work.

          • Carol Deer - Thanks for friending me. I'm slowly finding my way round this site - where can I look for the webinar by HB that you mention?

            • Go to your Jericho page (where you sign in) and click on Events Listings. You'll need to scroll down quite a way it was on July 6th this year. It's interesting because he explains his thinking as he does the editing on screen. Made me think.
