Pinned to sofa and a blog about Wollstonecraft
A long hiatus. I had Not finished the book on the Marys (Wollstonecraft and Shelley) after all. I had to do a quick last minute revision of the first 75 pages which altered all the subsequent chapters. Fortunately, my niece came up to help. She drove my son around to his lessons, helped copy-edit, made dinner, and, in general, lived my life on my behalf. I ended up turning the manuscript in on the day it was due, but barely. How can this be? — that one has years to write a book and it still comes down to the wire like this.
Then, we had a sudden death in the family. And now I have ripped my hamstring and am on the couch, complaining. However, this does give me the opportunity to flex my blog muscles again. I was excited to see that there is a blog devoted to the 250th anniversary of Wollstonecraft’s birth, inspired in part by the celebrations planned this spring in the UK: Mary on the Green.
