Got so engrossed with a story yesterday that I very nearly forgot I was going out for lunch to the Bedford Hotel in Tavistock. It meant a hasty getting ready and I was out of breath when I arrived thankfully in time. I have been looking at a story called Diamond in the Dust, the first story I have written set back in the 1930′s. Research is fascinating although eventually you have to set it aside and get on with the writing. I believe in this story even if it is a bit different from my usual offerings but it needs considerable work before I can present it to anyone. I am telling the story from just one viewpoint because that seems the right way to go about it. Funny, my children’s stories are always written in the first person because that seems the right way to go about them. Go with your instinct. If it feels right then it probably is.
