Hi, I hope this works for me tech is a little bit of an uncharted land for me.

I'm working through my line editor's suggestions for finishing my novel (genre: dark fantasy/horror), and she's highlighted something which is giving me a headache. 

I have my characters reading and sending a number of text messages and I've used italics for these. Editor didn't have a problem with this.

However, my protagonist and two secondary characters are telepathic and can converse easily. I've used italic AND quotes for this - because, to my mind, this is still conversation, albeit mind-to-mind. Editor thinks using both is overkill. 

Any ideas or suggestions?

What's happened to the Lounge? It's become a sort of newsroom - is that why it's so dead? 

Anyway, just popped in for a virtual top up of red...

NEW YEAR'S GOALS 

Hi everyone!

Christmas is almost upon us and unfortunately I'm not feeling too festive at the moment as I'm isolating with Covid ... 

Thinking ahead, I'd love to know what are your writing goals for 2022 and how are you planning on smashing them?

Hi everyone!

I'm very excited to announce that I'm Jericho Writer's new Head of Community & Editorial Commissions. The wonderful Holly Seddon has decided to focus on her writing career and studies, so I'm now the lucky one who gets to look after the community (as well as continuing my work commissioning authors for our blogs).

As you can see on my bio I'm also a published author, as well as a lecturer on all things writing, creative, and marketing.

I just popped in to introduce myself properly and say hello, and let you know that some very exciting things are being planned for the Jericho community in the new year. If you don't see me on here every day, don't worry, lots of great stuff is happening behind the scenes. We've been listening, and we're about to bring you a brand new world of writer support, opportunities, and fun.

So watch this space!

In the meantime, Emily D'Souza | Community Assistant | Jericho Writers will continue working hard on the community (don't forget the book club tomorrow) and we'll update you on the new changes very soon.

Thanks
Natali x

Hi. I've been trying to join the book club - but without success so far. Am I doing something wrong?
