OK, so this one is completely off topic but hey, that is great news, right? Also off-topic, but nonetheless pleasing, is this comprehensive study guide to Wuthering Heights by Naoise Dolan. Or how about this article called Discover Poldark’s Cornwall? Yes, it has nothing to do with writing, but, let’s face it, Sunday nights just haven’t been the same since season one of Poldark ended. Such wonderful… scenery. 

 

Ahem.
