How to Write About Boring Stuff

on 16/07/2012

Well, my research essay isn’t something I can ignore for too much longer. In readiness for the inevitable once the first draft it written, and, hopefully in an attempt to make what I write in that first draft not boring, I’m pulling together a list of sites and resources that I can read at a later date.

If in the meantime you happen to have the time and/or inclination to have a read and let me know what you think, by all means fill your boots!


And a little something I picked up as I googled: “Jane Austen was writing about boring people with desperately limited lives. We forget this because we’ve seen too many of her books on screen.” (Mark Haddon)But there must be something more to her boring people in their limited lives — how did she make boring interesting? Fabulous — a reason to read Austen.

*List in Progress*


If you see any, please let me know!
