Today I got back into novel editing mode – reading the feedback on my last, somewhat radical rewrite and getting ready for the final pass. This is it. Once I’m done this time then this book is going places. One way or another.
Today I wrote about Patrick MacGill, the poet from Glenties who fought two kinds of war. Tomorrow I may picture it and publish it. After that – I’ve got the feedback from my test reader on the novel, so it may be one final round of editing and then off it goes to…somebody. I’ll figure it out.
Today I researched the next (and possibly final, for a while) Odd Side article, this time about a man who succeeded in life with no advantages. I also got to read a bunch of awesome poetry, some of which may appear. And I get to mention Glenties, which has been an unfortunate absence so far. So win-win.
New Odd Side of Donegal article, this time time about the last lord of Doe Castle. Mary’s Servant And The Castle Of The Territories – come for the legend, stay for the facts.
Yesterday I wrote the legend, today I wrote the facts. Honestly, I prefer the legend. Ah well. Should have this up tomorrow.
Today I wrote about the legend of Doe Castle. Tomorrow I write about the true story of the villain of the story. Was he a true villain? Who are we to judge? (Answer: A bit, and superior future people.)
