  1. Thank you in advance for your insights, Anne – and other contributors.

    I have a completed a 15,000 word outline for a YA story set in 1820-1878 London and its surroundings, based on fact and the life of a hermit but told through his brother’s imagined PoV. I have to admit that I’m somewhat bogged down in research – just simple things like, when a wealthy family with 5 children traveled 40 miles, what kind of carriage would they own and use in 1830? Could they get there in a day? Would they walk a quarter of a mile to go to church? In 1820, when the family lived in central London, at what age was a child taught to ride a horse, by whom and where? On city streets or…? How did they learn swordsmanship and shooting?

    I look forward to hearing what other people are writing – and helping if I can.

    Best wishes to all
