What are you Writing?


Same principle as the "What are you Reading?" thread...

I am currently working on two projects. The first is a short story about the Battle of Watling Street (61 AD), told from the perspective of both the legionaries and the Iceni warriors.

I am also writing a short biography of Emperor Caracalla.

Re: What are you Writing?


good idea, sounds interesting Salah!

I'm planning to write something for here on the Punic Wars, and I'm working on a project with a friend of mine with high fantasy as the genre.

Re: What are you Writing?


As I stated to Sargon, I am a couple of pages into a short biography of Cleomenes III and the Cleomenean War for his site. When done, I will post the "war chapter" here as a primer.

Re: What are you Writing?


I'm working on an article about aspects of Hong Kong history. It may take me a while because I'm also completing my novel, but I'll put it up here when I'm finished.

Re: What are you Writing?


'Atrocity Propaganda and political opportunism in the aftermath of the Irish Rebellion of 1641 I did the same thing for my dissertation but I've decided to strip it back and make it more focused as I feel that when it was first written I under sold myself, although it was third year of uni when I wrote it so I was hammered pretty much the whole year.

Re: What are you Writing?


Perhaps a poignant addition to this thread would be, what are you going to do with your writing when it is finished?
