I have been in the 17th century so long in my head, I thought this may be a hard transition to make, but already I am halfway through Lucy Worsley's 'Courtiers' and I am beginning to see it. And what a tedious and repetitive life the court ladies lived! And who knew that King George II exhibited signs of Asperger's Syndrome - fascinating. I have also found some lovely blogs with lashings of useful information too, such as 'Georgian Junkie' written by Emery Lee and Lucinda Brant. Then there is The Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide. If anyone can recommend any others I would welcome the URL's. I need all the help I can get with my research, but I am enjoying browsing through bookshops in search of suitable reference books.
I love this part of the writing process.
