I was hoping to get what is now the first part of my WIP finished before the end of the year. I’ve just managed it! This is the first draft and it needs smoothing over, but the essentials are there. It was growing too big for a single volume so the story will be in two parts.
The next stage is the best part, with the main elements in place and the story worked out—adding the details that make the bare facts of history read like a real story.
Wishing everyone a very happy start to the new year
