SUCCESSFUL SEGUE: Editor Anna Thomson is also a published writer.
EVER get stuck into a good story, only to find your mind drifting after a few chapters because you can’t understand the characters?
Armidale editor Anna Thomson found she couldn’t “fall into” the story with some works she edited, even though the plot was well written and constructed.
Her solution was to write her own novel and, thanks to the inaugural Varuna-New England Writers' Centre fellowship, she spent a week working on Bloodwood. “Having an entire week to work uninterrupted on the manuscript was just what I, and it, needed,” Thomson said.
