As part of the MA in Creative Writing we get the opportunity to work on a novel, by the end of this term we have to hand over the first three chapters and in return we are given feedback by some amazing Irish writers such as James Ryan, Paul Perry and Eilish ni dhuibhne (Eilish has written many excellent novels and her book was shortlisted for the orange prize for fiction) I have just received the comments back from Eilish on the first three chapters of my fledgling novel and I am delighted to say that she really enjoyed it some of her comments were “Excellent Caroline. You know exactly what to do and how to do it” and “You have a gift for bringing the story to life” and “Very promising indeed”. Needless to say I am thrilled especially when they come from such a talented and experienced writer. I can’t wait to continue writing and hopefully by the end of my MA I may have a second novel wrote.
Positive feedback on second novel
