I'm thoroughly enjoying researching and writing for Chandlers Ford Today and the thought occurred today that each of the articles on this site is its own little world.
My most recent piece has been a combination of a historical story (Slapton Beach and its role in World War 2) and an interview with a writer friend of mine (Felicity Fair Thompson) who has written her book, The Kid on Slapton Beach, around this incident. In researching further into Slapton Beach, I felt as if I was going back into time and entering a world I had not known existed until Felicity mentioned a little about it when I was interviewing her earlier this year. It was an eye-opening experience for me.
I have also written an appreciation of Jane Austen and it makes me appreciate her achievements in the face of a society that was not female friendly and where her technological allies would have been a decent pen and plenty of paper. It's perhaps a reminder to not take my computer (and the ability to cut and paste without literally doing that as I used to have to do in my early secretarial career) for granted.
I also wrote a review of the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay (without giving certain things away. Anyone who has been and read my item will know what these are and why I left them out). It was fun to immerse myself totally in the world of Doctor Who for this item.
So I wonder what world will I immerse myself in next? What world will you go to, even if it is only for a short while?
