    Do you honestly believe our Mandy has a sparkly dress in her own wardrobe? Let alone make-up and hair crimpers. :-) By pure coincidence, I know who did the editing of the whole thing - my son's flatmate who was alerted by the mention of my name ...

    Jane Austen was the game-changer. Since then, PD4/free indirect style has become much more commonly used as a way to get us closer to characters. So, not that recent!

    Thanks, Richard. :-) I'm running the 27th course at the moment (can you believe that???) so I'm here a fair bit but don't always spot things on the main Cloud wall. Appreciate you jumping in.
