I originally wrote my novel with a start, a middle and an ending. It got rejected fourteen times.
So I rewrote it, putting half the middle first, then the start, followed by the ending and finished with the rest of the middle. It was the same story, just told unintelligibly.
It’s now been published for a million pounds, gone straight to the top of the bestsellers, got nominated for three awards and the film’s due out next year.
