Wendy, I loved this month's Calamity's Corner...
Sanctum was a movie and a half. I tried to tell myself it was NOT based on a true story... although people do undertake those sort of dives. Not this little black duck!! My son does ocean dives. Dives Fish Rock Cave with hundreds of sharks, but he is very conscious of safety.
After listening to him talk about diving I have a feeling the characters in Sanctum ignored danger signs and didn't take all the precautions they should have.
Still... doesn't lessen the impact of the movie. The cinematography was brilliant. The Australian actors did well.
One of the women divers who helped on the movie was killed recently on a dive in Aust. So I hear. So it is a dangerous sport. Makes me NOT want to watch the movie again.
At present I am working on the word game... it's an interesting exercise. Thanks!!
Oh.. and waiting impatiently for Anita's book to come on sale. She does write with a magic pen! Imagine walking around the setting of your novel and being able to get inside your characters head the way she does. I guess Wendy, you did the same sort of thing when you went back to where The Unhewn Stone was set. You actually walked the paths and visited the places Stefan frequented.
I can see why History has such an appeal after reading Anita's interview.
Although, I think I will stick to reading your novels, rather than trying to write in that genre myself. Can't wait till June to read Tencarrow Secret and see the world through Anita and Elizabeth's eyes.
