LEYLAND PERREE CHILDREN'S AUTHOR
Currently working on Salt!, a story I started some years back as a kind of serialised communal project to which other writers could contribute. It didn't take off - mainly because I had no forum through which to advertise its existence to the world - but my initial chapter received fair praise from the random few who read my post on a writing community website (ABC Tales, I think).
Anyhoo, I dug it out recently and started to pick my way through it dreading the worst. I was pleasantly surprised that it held up pretty well for a first draft. I have since rectified a few consistency issues and rewritten a few bits I thought were weak - but all in all it's pretty much the same. The main changes made were to reinforce the narrative surrounding the climbers using research I've done on mountaineering equipment and techniques. It's panning out pretty well so far considering I don't have any climbing experience at all.
I mean, I thought crampons were the thingies that fell out of ladies purses...
