A cool resource for historical writers...

I found this link through a list for the course I'm taking this summer (Creating and Managing Digital Collections)

It's the Historical Thesaurus of English, hosted at the University of Glasgow.

Even writers of contemporaries may still find it useful :)

In other news...

I'm very busy with school right now - will be back with you as time allows.

You like historical novels right? (So do I but anyway) There's this one called The Year Of The Death Of Richardo Reis by Jose Saramago which was really stunning, perhaps you've already read it though.
And er, when you have the time, could you please sift through my blog? There's a story I've written there which I would like you to read and if possible, comment upon.

Melissa - It's very cool indeed - I've already used it!

Orange cat - I'd love to help you, but I'm just swamped with school work and work work right now. Sorry! Will see if I can find that book you mentioned :) Thanks for the tip!

Kelly - the link looks right up your alley!
