The last 36 hours have been fantastic! What has happened? Well there is a lot of ‘rationalisation’ otherwise known as ‘de-cluttering’ going on here. Somewhere around I have a copy of the 1906 ‘Hangman’s Record’. I found a very tatty copy but there is a better one around so I went looking. I didn’t find it but I found a very heavy briefcase that I though had long since gone. I opened it up and BINGO – there I found finished & unfinished; published and unpublished; fact and fantasy; snippets of story and poetry dating back to the 1980s. Every so often I’ve cursed the loss of this work – now it’s here and I’ve spent the day sorting it. There is now a large lever arch file pre-sorted. Some pieces will be appearing here soon.
I wonder where the Hangman’s Record is hiding – it wasn’t in the briefcase!
