12th July

Just 237 new words. Geoffrey gambling with his fellow guards. Spent a ridiculous amount of time ‘responding’ to the review I cut from Elin’s You Write On page yesterday. Inverted commas because there is no way actually to respond (there is no e-mail address or chat form), and anyway there’s no point. But it’s hard to be told one “has very little idea of the history of the time” by someone who demonstrates his own ignorance of the period repeatedly in his comments. (There were too silver threepenny pieces in circulation in Elizabethan England! Shakespeare himself writes ‘chamber-pot’, hyphen and all, in Coriolanus Act II Scene 1!) OK, over that now … 🙂
