Today was mostly dialogue. I love writing dialogue and find when I get in the groove the characters just take control and I don't have to do much work. I did do quite a bit of fact checking along the way. As the action is now in 1937 I find myself constantly checking etymological dictionaries. It's so frustrating when you find the perfect word only to discover it's an anachronism.
I wrote a bit about all the fabulous colourful fabrics in the covered market, then remembered Paxo on his Empire programme talking about Gandhi making a stand against the import of British fabrics, which was destroying the indigenous weaving industry. This meant a minor rewrite - but actually opened another door. The pictures here are ones I did when in Munnar last year - both in the covered market.
