I am currently writing a novel set in the late fifteenth century, in the wars of the roses (WOTR). I have been writing for ~3 years and am on my third draft (is that a good thing?). The book is approx 400,000 words and is actually getting shorter as I edit (definitely a good thing - why did I need those adjectives anyway?). I just hope I have done justice to one of my protaganists, Richard Neville Earl of Warwick and Salisbury, you probably know him as The Kingmaker.
