This is the home page for my blog about my writings.
A subject that has caught my attention lately is ‘microhistory.’ The history of everyday life. The tiny details that make life what it is. I have written about this for my journals in my essay The Minutiae of Everyday Life.

Following information from Angela Bavidge of Aberdeen, I have updated my article about the wreck of the Imperial Prince and added a new image to it.

Back to The Trench
I have decided to put my third novel on the backburner, for the time being. Instead, I will continue to work on my second novel. The Trench.
Regular Sunday posts abandoned
I have decided not to post every Sunday. Instead, I will post when I have something to say. When I need to say it.
In the past I wrote:
Each week I will write about my work. What I have been doing as a writer. This page is the home page for those posts. I plan to add links here to each of the instalments that I publish, on this website.
You might think that this whole website is a blog. So does that mean that I will have a blog within a blog? Yes. If it suits you to think of it that way. I think of this blog as being like a diary or, maybe, a journal. Posts will talk about what I have been doing and maybe what I plan to do in the week ahead.
That is a different format from post articles that are free-standing. Which is what most of the pages on this website are.
These are the articles I posted
5th August – Keeping going.
29th July – Turning point.
15th July – Use your imagination.
8th July 2018. – Ways of writing a novel.
10th June 2018. – Changing course.
