Do you remember when a walk or a hike in the countryside was called rambling? Maybe you’re not old enough to remember that term! My sister and I and a group of friends would sometimes go off on a ramble on the South Downs, where we lived, back in the 70s. Cissbury Ring was one of our favourite places. By the way, did you know that the dips in the land on the downs are called bottoms?

There is another definition of rambling: “to talk or write at length in a confused or inconsequential way”… which is exactly what I’ve been doing. You didn’t come here to hear about rambling, or even to hear me rambling…south downs

Hope you’ve learnt something about rambling, though, and how to avoid it in your own writing! 🙂
