How's it going guys and gals of the writing forum? I signed up a few years back as research and didn't post at that time. I just had a scout around and a read of the wisdom that is shared and on offer. I've been writing all my life and even when explaining cooking methods, or simple trips to the shop for daily groceries to my daughter, I tend to really lay it on and add weight wherever possible. Sad I know, but children are without doubt, the holders of the greatest imagination. William Blake paints that very picture brilliantly with Innocence/Experience. I'm currently in the middle of writing my début novel and enjoying every minute. Especially the research. The opportunity to map everything out prior to getting started is also an opportunity to learn a completely new subject, or sharpen my knowledge on geography in a specific area, or history of a specific time. Anyway I shall leave it there and wave goodbye... For now..!
