Another Giant Step

An exciting day for me because today I debut’d as a regular contributor to the History Girls Blog, a fabulous and to me slightly intimidating line-up of historical fictionistas. I mean, they have some Very Serious Writers on their masthead.

Check them out for yourself here

There’s a new blog posted most days and I’ve drawn the 11th of the Month slot, right after my surrogate sister and Venetian comrade in rat- wrangling, Michelle Lovric. Michelle writes more words before breakfast than I manage in a week so she’s going to be some act to follow. I think I’ll have to make brevity my signature thing.

Anyway I’m very thrilled to have been invited and even more thrilled to have navigated behind the scenes of someone else’s website without banjaxing everything.  When I think how I started out on that old Smith-Corona with the E key that always jammed. In the larger scheme of writing practicalities I feel like I’ve achieved a moon landing.

But anyway, back to earth, splash-down and work.

    Why did I buy A Humble Companion? No dishes are being washed,ironing left undone and I read until 1 am in the morning. I must put this book down and get on with my chores- but I can’t. It is another winner from Laurie – Thankyou
