A Ruthless Need by Catherine Cookson
This story is about how war changes people. It's set in World War 2 and interspersed with research as you'd expect, but really about people, love and complicated relationships. Class wars. Lost love. Sorrow and heartache. People changing and upsetting the balance. There are beautifully intricate descriptions of character's actions - not described as happy or sad, but how they act when happy or sad (poise, facial expression). This isn't something I do in my writing, but I would like to learn because it's all about emotion for me and how to convey it in beautiful prose.

Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
