Jane ... 'is a brave and gentle supporter ...'
Jane has been helping me with my writing for the last twelve months. I started my novel when I attended a fiction writer's course. I then got writer's block.
Jane has helped trigger the exploration of the characters in my work.. She asks what is happening with the characters, the plot and we are working on a first person narrative rather than third person. She also helped me discover the real protagonist.
These huge steps had stopped me from writing and I am now back in the flow thanks to Jane.
Her tutoring is gentle, sensible and affirming.
I am so glad I have this opportunity to run the work by her as it develops. She has an astute eye and every suggestion is from the reader's perspective and helps make the story more whole and readable.
The writing would be substantially different if it wasn't for her capacity to observe the gaps and make sound suggestions.
I recommend her skills to anyone who wishes to get on with their novel or memoir. She is a brave and gentle supporter of my writing and I feel I am in good and safe hands.
