Fast forwarding from 1762 to the 1950s, I have prepared my notes and worksheets for the first of my Summer Holidays workshops. I have joined a facebook group about Maddieson's Camp (Now Romney Sands in Greatstone). This group and my reference book have given me an insight into the entertainment on offer, and mean that my workshop can be specifically about Maddieson's rather than any British holiday camp. My own experience is limited to watching Hi-de-hi! I have been to Romney Sands recently and it's good to see that some of the old chalets (not from the 50s) are being renovated rather than replaced with caravans.
On to modern times... I have been mentoring someone who had an idea for a book of short stories and have formatted his book for him. The proof copy arrived a couple of days ago, and I have been looking through it and tweaking the version on my computer.
As always, there are other things to do as well as author work. I've had two trips to Hawkinge via country lanes (due to the troubles with lorries stacked up on the M20). I passed a tiny church at Paddlesworth and a pub called The Cat and the Custard Pot - looks like somewhere interesting to explore sometime soon.
