Those of you who are following me on this know that I had decided to use both Thomas Armstrongs in my story. But I have tried – and I just cannot get interested in the war history! I’m a social historian and I just can’t bring myself to read one more thing about who was fighting who in enough detail to write it.
I should have known better: I rarely plan my writing I just let it happen. Usually, it is already planned for me because it happened and I am just adding the unknown. But The Parting Glass is different. So many unknowns that I will have to write a real fiction this time with just the correct information for the time I set it in.
So – I am back to the drawing board.
