Despatches From the Querying Trenches - The Last Post. Guest Blog by Kirsten Hesketh.

Posted on 28th September, 2018

Today I welcome Kirsten to my blog for her last appearance as a regular contributor. Since the start of last year, she has shared the ups and downs of her writer's life in what has become a very popular series. I think we have all enjoyed and appreciated her frank and humourous anecdotes.


Kirsten is now moving onto her own website and blog, so here is her last Despatch From the Querying Trenches.


Many thanks for all the guest posts, Kisrten. It's been huge fun, having you as a regular visitor. xxx

Despatches from the Querying Trenches.


The Last Post


This will be my last post on Susanna’s wonderful blog for a while and the last in the Despatches from the Querying Trenches series. I’ve now set my own website and it’s time to move on.


But it’s still sad and I hate goodbyes so I will be short and sweet.


I’d like to thank Susanna for giving me a regular slot on her blog. It was such a generous gesture and I feel so fortunate, as an unpublished writer, to have been given the opportunity. And I’ve really enjoyed taking stock each month and sharing my highlights and lowlights. I hope it’s been interesting. Thank you so much, Sue.


And thank you to all of you, my lovely readers, especially those of you who have been kind enough to comment, both here and on social media. Writing can a pretty lonely business, full of uncertainty and setbacks, and I’ve been overwhelmed by your support, empathy, humour and encouragement.


I hope I will be able to come back and do the odd post here and there and I am very much looking forward to hosting Sue on my website in due course. And, of course, I’m looking forward to reading Sue - and her guests’ - posts going forward and continuing to champion her fabulous blog. I’m sure it will go from strength to strength.


But, for now, au revoir and thank you again.


It’s been a blast.
