When I published Aubrey: Remnants in Transformation (Roesia 1), I posted notes about the writing process. I do not claim to be a perfect writer. I am a reasonably skilled craftswoman, that's all. But I find the writing process absolutely fascinating! How does one solve a writing problem?
Some of these notes also include information about the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, especially since I use relevant photos and portraits to illustrate each post.
