A cunning plan?

Two chapters in, and I still haven't put together a complete plan for the novel, just a general one. Maybe that is something to do today. Then again, perhaps I should just crack on with the next chapter.

I've been reading Bill Bryson's biography of Shakespeare, which mostly seems focussed on how little we really know about him. I particularly liked the section on the various theories proposing that Shakespeare didn't write the works attributed to him, on the basis that he couldn't have been educated enough. That no one questioned it in his time or for hundreds of years afterwards seems unimportant to them. But then, you should never let the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.
