One of 2 excellent pages with Gerry Embleton’s rendering of a Medieval archer’s gear. Taken from “English Longbowmen” in the Osprey series.
Not getting bored of my own story and/or character is one of the main struggles I have had with novel writing, and I have put to bed big chunks of work that just didn’t sustain my interest.

[The first time Tatiana as Helena started dancing] the crews’ jaws dropped to the floor because she just kind of lost it there. After we shot one take, I was like, “Whoa that was crazy…can you do it again?” And of course you have to do these dances a number of times to get it right and, after about the third take, Tatiana was like, “I don’t know why I started that in the first place.” – John Fawcett
In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.
