I am sure I’ve had this idea before, and may have even blogged about it a year or two ago, but last night I decided to write Lyn’s biography. Lyn is a fascinating person whose tale is worth telling, ranging from the early days in the sixties to achieving her independence to becoming a musician and performing at the paralympic closing ceremony last year. I think this is the concrete project I have been looking for: my idea is to write it in prose first (say about 30,000 words) and then adapt it for stage or screen. It will be awesome. The question is, while I know roughly how source-based history works, never having written a biography before I don’t know where to begin. This might take a while.
