I know my last posts have seemed obsessed with the weather, but we seem to have so much of it lately.
Cold again tonight, but at least no snow in the forecast. Weather is one of the things I need to remember to add to my novels - not just as background to add to a scene, but sometimes as a driving factor in the action or motivation. More weather, as well as some local smells and sounds, what a room looks like, what a chair feels like. Not as much as a Victorian novel, but enough to add depth.
The past week I've visited my grandson for his birthday, started a new course, edited a bit, read some more, and played a lot of Wargame with my son. We have each settled on a basic set of units, that will hopefully be flexible enough for most
scenarios, and will now work on our strategy in games.
