I am making slow progress on The Right Place, finally reaching 20,000 words a few days ago.
If I had been as productive as I'd wanted to be during the past five months of lockdown/coronavirus crisis, I probably would have finished the first draft by the end of the this month. Alas! It was not to be...
I still intend on sticking to my new schedule of completing the first draft by 31st December.
Over the next few weeks, I will go out and find inspiration in the county of Dorset...
I have a busy weekend planned, so might have something to post about by Monday!
The pictures illustrating this post were taken yesterday in Portesham, a village we've driven through so many times on our way to Bridport or the Hardy monument or further afield that we have lost count.
But we had never really stopped there, and yesterday, we had a good look around the village (especially to look at The Old Vicarage which was for sale until recently - we quite fancied it, you see, because it was exactly as we imagine our dream house to be - i.e not ruined/modernised inside - but as it came with a price tag of £600,000...)
The house in the picture is Grade II listed Trafalgar House - and it is sadly in a sorry state. It always makes me so cross when houses are just left to rot. Most certainly, it would be better for someone to be allowed to save it from imminent ruin?
I think therefore I write.
