I have been writing a series of short stories called Lanterns of the North (Cathedral in the main town in the area is sometimes referred to as Lantern of the North). It plays to my interests and passion for local historical figures, the area I live in has some of most important events in Scottish History but it is largely forgotten to the point there is a vital 700 year old document in a shoe box in a draughty damp cellar. I have a business plan for this want to self publish and get it translated into the Scots Language. Macbeth has connection to the area and the three witches were hanged about three miles from here. I am contemplating a short story and unsure whether to portray as accurate - a man who got rid of a useless monarch and reigned well or to go down the Shakespearean route? The latter would be more fun to write but I like the idea of improving his image lol (It still remains my favourite play). What would you do ?
