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 revising

Today I continued scrutinizing the work for any sentence that begins with “There”. To me that indicates a poorly constructed sentence that can be greatly improve by eliminating that word and restructuring the sentence usually making it stronger.

Next, I’ll go through the work each chapter at a time checking to see that it has a conflict of some sort. Without conflict, whether it’s physical, emotional, or psychological, the reader will soon lose interest. I like to leave a chapter with a cliffhanger; that always excites the reader’s attention, but of course that’s not always possible.

At the same time, I look at each sentence carefully to try to improve it as I read along.

Charles, I haven't forgotten. We have had a run of ill luck in the family and I have not yet seen our Cousin, but hopefully that will change soon. I am intent of getting your books into the schools here if I can.
