felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Pardoner)
[personal profile] felis_ultharus
Well, after a six-month hiatus, I have finally updated my historical blog. In my defence, I had to research the history of golf in Canada for background. It was painful.

(It will surprise no one that lesbians have been golfing since the 19th century at least, I'm sure. One day they'll unearth a whole other cave-painting complex at Lascaux that's nothing but portraits of lesbian golfers.)

One nice detail is that my website was quoted and referenced in a print book: How To Make Love in a Canoe: Sex in Canada. I've been in contact with the author Jeff Pearce, so I knew it was probably coming, but I got my advance copy the other day. He used my theory that James Barry could have been trans, as well as my reviews of the really bad lit around Barry.

It's only a page and a half, but I was pretty stoked. Along with the attention from mainstream historians and the praising e-mails, it does make me feel like I'm doing something worthwhile with my life :)

Other that that, I'm doing a minimum of thirteen pages a day of editing on the novel. It feels ready, and I'm proud of that, too.
