Over 2000 words of the new book written now. It’s set in India, but so far we’re still in London. It’s flowing along quite nicely – and I think, compared to A Greater World, much easier, having worked out the plot and planned the structure first.
I’m actually enjoying writing it (and why not you ask? – but sometimes writing can be a struggle…) – and I’m having fun with the research. I always like that part and spend a lot of time checking historical details. The year at the beginning of the book is 1936. A very eventful year – Spain was in Civil War, Hitler was humiliated at the Berlin Olympics by Jesse Owens, George V died and King Edward VIII abdicated. And this is what the fashion looked like that year. Love it!
