Despite the rickety back which refuses to heal properly, I have been able to sit at the computer for a longer time and am happy to say that Chapter One of "FORBIDDEN" is well under way. A tiny piece of it needs researching and, believe me, the research is taking longer than the writing. I am not, however, tempted to leave out this scene, because it is important in establishing the personalities of the main characters. Since it's fiction based on fact, if you know what I mean, I could possibly bluff my way through the incident that involves a German plane crashing in Northumberland early on in the First World War. I have found some references, but not enough information for me to feel confident. I could blast away with this information and my own imagination [I've done that before], but there's always the chance that some 'expert' out there will come up with a crushing criticism.CoolAh well. The story is the main thing, so I'd better get on with that and come back to the research when I'm not so frustrated about German Fokkas nose-diving on the Northumberland moors.
