|A scene from chapter two:|
Cargill monument in Custom House Sq. Dunedin
One minor character who has leapt off the page is in fact a real historic character. I don't know much about her, just that she and her husband ran the Crown Hotel in the 1880s in Dunedin and that she was a wonderful cook and a well liked hostess. I've never written a 'real' character before and I'm thoroughly enjoying embellishing what I know and making her a fully rounded person. She has been just what Amelia needed to get her through the first 'crisis' of the story.
On the home front, life just seems to get busier. Teenagers are such social folk and my life tends to revolve around taxi duty, cooking and washing. They are a really helpful bunch and attend to their chores regularly, but I still wish I could divide myself in 2, 3, or maybe 4!! JT could sit at her desk all day and all the other Sue clones could deal to the mundane. Oh well, dreams are free.
