Writing Wednesday: Would You Believe it?

From the March edition of Writing Magazine:
According to a poll conducted for the UK’s popular book review and recommendations website, Lovereading.co.uk, one in five British men believe that Charles Darwin wrote Oliver Twist and George Orwell’s classic novel Animal Farm is a blue movie.

The study of Britain’s reading habits also revealed that 25 percent thought that Sherlock Holmes was a real character, and 67 percent thought that the Scottish poet Robert Burns invented the haggis.

The survey of 2,000 men aged thirty and under revealed that on average they take between eight and twelve months to read one paperback.

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
