Charles Web Journal

My blog is intended to show how I construct and write a historical novel. It will be a journal of my daily writing activity, as I write a new historical novel.

Location: Evansburg, Alberta, Canada

I am a retired school teacher with a B. Ed in English literature a B.A. in History. After a long career as a teacher of English and history, I now write historical novels based on Canadian history.

Still working

No work on my WIP today. I’m still reviewing and revising my manuscript that was accepted by Saga Books. I hope to finish by the weekend, and then get back to my novel based on Alberta history.

I didn’t think it would take this long to go over the already edited manuscript, but editing, reviewing, and revising always take longer than one estimates. One has to be extra careful because it’s so easy to miss little mistakes—typos, missed punctuation marks, extra words—thing like that.

I’ve done it before, so I should know better.

Thanks easywriter for the visit. Not much happening with the WIP at the moment. Too many other things in the fire.
