I’m working on historical fiction which takes place during the Crimean War, 1853-1856, in England, Turkey and The Crimea (now the Ukraine, specifically Sebastapol/Sevastapol).
This is my first novel, though I’ve begun a couple others (years ago). I’ve been working as a technical author, freelance writer and marketing programmes manager in the high-tech arena for a couple of decades. I’m ready to be out of the corporate world for a while.
My husband and I just moved to Malaysia (from the UK) for three years for his job and I now have the freedom and time to finish this project, which I began with NaNoWriMo last November. I’d like the first draft really done and in serious editing in time to begin the next one with this year’s NaNoWriMo — if all goes to plan.
I’m looking forward to Ladies Who Critique and just finished a series of on-line writing and poetry classes–and now have more time to do a better job of exchanging critiques.
Sounds like some interesting projects here! /cyn
