494 Writing History

I have written quite a few posts where I have discussed that I have an interest in history. I really would like to write something about the history of Gosport. And then you go and find a website like this;

http://www.mygosport.org/gosport_history.htm

Now this is an excellent site, and produces the level of detail that I would like to write. But the question has to be asked; if this chap has done this that well, what is the point of me doing it? I don’t want to end up continually referring to it, because I would only repeat the historic detail he alreadyprovides. To be honest, I see little point in doing that.

Now clearly there are a lot of things that I don’t know and as I research I will find things out, and I delight in that, for example I’m reading a book about Wareham, Dorset, and found out that Lady Elizabeth de Clare founded Clare’s College Cambridge, she was living in Wareham in the 14th Century when she did so – lovely.

So, before embarking on the project I was writing about last night. I need to come up with a different view on this. I recall a time about thirty years ago, where as a part of my job I was asked to do a presentation. When I saw what the topic was, I thought well, how am I going to do this as pretty much everybody I will be talking to will know it all anyway. So I changed tack and went right back to the very beginning and talked about the very early history of the topic. That strategy worked very well. So, I need to think a little bit about the approach I’m going to take.

Planning for Fantasy Holiday 2022 is progressing. I have two of the four books I’ve asked for, and the most recent book means that I can start FH22 at the location I want to. Don’t forget, FH22 will be on Facebook.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
