In search of Edward and his relatives

With the first draft I wrote nearly six years ago copied to my iPad, I've set out to revisit and redraft the story while I am in London again. I've take a red pen to much of what I had written - too complicated for primary school children to understand, too many characters, too much history.

I haven't got far with the rewriting but I've done some good research in Westminster Abbey, St Albans Cathedral, the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. I've walked my feet off, and hopefully some centimetres off my waistline in the process, and I've had a good time. I've got some good ideas which I hope will improve the encounter between Abbie and Edward, and I have not taken a single photo. It's all in the mind. I hope nothing happens to it before I get back to Australia or I will have to turn around and come back again

Off to York on Sunday
