Deity Feedback by Tim Clare

A really cool poet by the name of Tim Clare does a weekly blog post called ‘Death of 1000 Cuts’, and this week he picked the first page of my very unfinished novel Deity to subject to a kind dusting of criticism delivered in warm, cooing tones.

Tim’s a really good performance poet, listen to him here. He also plays ukulele and likes sci-fi, video games and editing fiction, so he’s like me but about thirty levels higher.

Read what he has to say here. Key phrases include: ‘readers enjoy being strangers in strange lands’, ‘this is fundamentally good writing practice’ andΒ ‘this is not of a publishable standard’.

Thanks Tim! I’m feeling motivated now, maybe I will give Camp Nano a go this month…
