Aberglaslyn Pass


(Picture: Owen Law)

The place you see above is where I am setting the current scene for the novel, where a 'duel' is fought between two characters. It's the river which runs through the Aberglaslyn Pass to the south of Beddgelert. Myself and my partner visited this wonderful location during our holiday to Snowdonia in June, when I took the opportunity to take some pictures for use in relation to the book. The reason why I decided to use this one is because it seems like a perfect place for such a scene. In the fictional plot, this area is a 'flashpoint' between two opposing forces, the position of demarcation to which I alluded to in a previous post. I would recommend a visit here if you ever get chance, due to the fact that it is such a congenial spot, hidden away in the Snowdonia mountains. Of course, you might have to put up with lots of other tourists passing through, but I think as a place to have a picnic and spend some relaxation time, it's probably worth its weight in gold.

So, having done my bit for the Snowdonia National Park tourist board, I'll briefly get back to the point regarding the progress of the novel. I have now got to the stage where I can start describing the fight. This is a bit more exciting for me, as it entails a little more action and also a chance to bring some of my martial arts experience into the book. I don't want to say much more on that now, as I reckon I'll be stealing some of the thunder from my next blog, which I anticipate will be a bit more in depth about the particular martial art I wish to incorporate into the story. So for now, I'll just let you enjoy the scene (sorry, I can't vouch for my photography being all that great!) and sign off until the next instalment.

Until the next time……
