My Christmas break is over and tomorrow I am back in the rat race. It has been a very quite few weeks with little in the way of emails coming through on the work front after 20 December. The blogosphere has also been quiet with a lot of people on blogging breaks to enjoy the Christmas and New Year festivities with family and friends.
As we had a whirlwind holiday in Scotland in August 2019 and then a short break in Budapest in September, I told my husband I didn’t want to go away over this Christmas break, preferring to
relax prepare for 2020 work myself to death in my usual OCD way and try to break the back of my re-write and embellishment of my new paranormal historical novel, A Ghost and His Gold. Over the past two half weeks of my holiday, I have added 30 000 words to my WIP. I am pleased with this progress as this book includes a lot of history about the Second South African War (Anglo Boer War) and as I am writing from both the British and the Boer perspective, it involves masses of research. There is also the modern element which involves the three ghosts and pulls the story together and that also takes time and effort and some research.
