Today was the Scout parade in Dorchester-on-Thames. If you haven’t been there you should. It is lovely: quaint old village with the beautiful Dorchester Abbey. We had lunch before the parade started at the Fleur de Lys pub (& hotel) – the food was very good and the chef made, from scratch, a special sweet potato, leek and pepper pie as I’m a vegetarian. We were lucky with the weather too.
Now, I have to get back to proofing/editing my book. I am finding it a little easier to focus on the grammar and sentence structure, but it is still extremely easy to fall into the trap of ‘reading’ the story rather than assessing its literary structure. It’s worse if I’m tired!
I am going to post the beginning of my teen novel. I am very wary of doing this. But, as other authors have done it without any repercussions, I ought to just tighten my stays and hit the ‘post’ button.
Keep a watch….
