Almost a year ago I spoke at Ayr Writers’ Club on creating a sense of place. And being an historical writer for me that includes period, but the principles apply whatever era you’re writing in even if it’s only last week. Though of course for last week it’s easier to take your reader with you. – Or it should be at least. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with them (and the short stories I read later when judging their competition) and it seems, by this report in their blog, that they (or at least the blog writer) did too. He clearly didn’t fall asleep while I was talking for he covered most of what I said.
It was a nice surprise to see this for the first time today – thank you again, Ayr Writers’ Club.
