I have had to abandon reading A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing because it's that fun final exam / essay period of my degree but I wanted to share this video. The author, Eimear McBride is talking about the writing process behind her, now Baileys Prize nominated, novel which I thought may be of interest to any budding authors amongst you! Years of rejection, manuscript put away in the drawer, losing all hope....and then suddenly all of this success and recognition has come at once. It's always nice, when you're plodding through wondering why you even bothered in the first place, to be reminded that success isn't always immediate. Sometimes you have to spend a long time doubting yourself before you get the recognition you deserve.
Have you read A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing? If so, what did you think?
