The most important person in a murder mystery is the victim. Everyone should hate him, or no-one should hate him. The former is more fun, of course.
First novel suffered from a glaring lack of female characters – mostly due to it being set in the 1920s, and most of the characters being university lecturers. Still. Starting to fix that.
Today I caught up with the other protagonist from my first novel, who is having far too good a time to be the hero in the sequel. Tomorrow, someone new!
Planning to start into the sequel to my first novel while I’m back in Donegal, so today I wrote a sketch of my protagonist, five years later. He’s a bit bored.
Finally done with the Wars of the Roses. Not sure what’s next. For the moment, here’s The Golden Rose Triumphant – The End Of The Wars.
Last instalment of the Wars of the Roses written up. Tomorrow, editing and posting.
Learning a lot about Margaret Beaufort, a strong woman of the type you rarely see in fiction. History is a great educator. Last Roses episode to write tomorrow.
Penultimate episode of the Wars of the Roses. Edward IV dies and his brother Richard immediately starts killing people. Not a nice guy. The White Rose With The Dark Heart – Richard III Takes The Throne
I did not think so before I researched it, but now I find it hard to dispute. Also Lady Margaret Beaufort is a hell of an operator. May need to devote a large portion of the next episode to her.
Today’s writing was doing some research on zombies for a possible future project. Exciting stuff. If it doesn’t pan out I’l turn it into an article.
