Although I haven't quite got to the end of the novel, I'm currently having a bit of a read through of it. This is because I'm starting to wonder if I haven't made a couple of fairly fundamental errors with it that will ultimately handicap how good it can be. I suspect that my main character isn't 'main' enough, for a start, and that recasting her role in events might result in a better work. I'm reading through in the hope that I'm wrong, because while I feel there are several sections I might be able to salvage almost intact, having to totally rewrite everything would be a bit of a pain.
Again though, this is going to have to wait. I'm at the sharp end of the PhD, and also need to work through the requirements of my credit-getting module. That means I've got an academic book review to put together (meaning that I've got to remember not to do it the way I might do a review here) and also a presentation on the Battle of Fulford. Preferably one that doesn't refer to it as a "no score draw".
