Courtesy of [personal profile] lilliburlero: Post seven sentences of the seventh page of a current WiP.

It has to be the eternal HP/Wimsey Corsican adventure. Page 7 seems to be mostly short-sentence dialogue, and spoilers. Have some of the former.

‘Lord Peter Wimsey, that sounds familiar - of course, the Attenbury Emeralds case! It caused quite a stir on our side. There was a rumour that the emeralds were cursed and that’s why they were sold to old Attenbury. Obviously not, or it’d have been even more of a stir than it was. I’m delighted to meet you, Lord Peter. That was a splendid bit of detective work; I’m afraid I don’t see as much intellectual curiosity as one might like in my job. I try to promote the ethos, but people like Laburnia Montague will always take it as Law Enforcement.’

I realised to my horror the other day that I haven't actually done any work on it since the end of January. That needs to change, urgently, but as I came home from work at lunchtime with mysterious lurgy, it is unlikely to change tonight. On the plus side, I am doing some mending and catching up with Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.
