Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
Elspeth - Oh, I want this, too!! Wow! Admittedly, my family is not English, and never lived in London. But the '30s were the worlds of both of my parents, and what a world it was! I want that DVD, too. Now. Thank you for sharing this with us. You know, I can't wait to read your novel....
Even though I know it was in between the wars, and there was grinding poverty and life was so hard for so many people, there is still a huge part of me that longs for the time of the clips and videos that you show.
Margot; Thanks so much for your kind words!Sarah; I understand exactly what you mean. Thanks for your faithful commenting - I really appreciate it.
Reminds me so much of my mother's photo albums. Only by chance/luck did I end up in the US; when her family left Europe, half went to England, the other half to the US.Terry Terry's PlaceRomance with a Twist--of Mystery
You keep writing 'em, and I'll keep reading 'em :-)
Terry; How interesting that the family didn't all go to the same place - was it not possible given the immigration statuses at the time?Sarah; :))))))
Fascinating. And your book will undoubtedly be fascinating, as well!
Love coming here. I never know what I'll find but it's always thought provoking. Your book is really going to be something special.
Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
