Yesterday, I finished reading through the book of short stories I formatted for someone and made all the corrections on the file. I then sent him my list of corrections to approve. It's amazing how the mistakes leap out when in a different format - I was looking on paper rather than the screen.
I went for a walk to my local coffee cart and looked across what is now a golf course but used to be a race course in Georgian times. This features in both my next novel and a workshop. It is a fascinating piece of little-known local history. The horses were ridden by their owners and only a couple of horses raced at one time.
Over the past couple of days (in 1762) Phoebe remains in Wissant with her family. I've made slow progress with this chapter, but an idea for an additional small twist in the plot has sprung to mind. The cemetery shown in the photo is in the countryside outside Wissant. Phoebe is there with her aunt at the moment. I have busy on google maps looking at the path they would take from the village to the cemetery. I've dropped the little yellow man and looked at the surroundings. It's incredible what can be done from the laptop nowadays! You can see how different the cemetery is compared to an English churchyard. Here on Romney Marsh we even have sheep grazing in some of our churchyards!
As well as work, I am busy with some DIY projects, but I am aware that I must do some more reading and editing of my novel soon. I like to revisit it and make corrections regularly. I hope by tomorrow I will be back in Dymchurch with the book again. Or maybe the next day?
