Also, adding animal companions to a story is totally fun. Not something I would do in an adult novel, but it rocks the MG story.

1,828 words on Winterwatch today. Up to 18k now. The beginning still feels a bit jumbly, as I'm adding new scenes to act as the opening, but it's allowing me to formulate a better introduction to the book. Adding new stuff always requires rework of scenes that used to be the opening, so that'll take a bit of spackle and some sanding, but it shouldn't be too bad.

While at Norwescon, Michael Moorcock talked about a story of his that was generated (in part) from history. He referenced Little Portugal in London as a haven for thieves because it was (at some point in London's history) an extralegal territory for the local cops because of its status as foreign territory. Anyone else know about this? It was certainly a new historical tidbit for me.

A) I find this to be very cool.

B) Anyone know of any other examples where unique organizations (thiefy or otherwise) were formed because of a legal peculiarity?

Good thought. I'm sort of stockpiling these away for story ideas. I will one day write my thief story, and I plan to use this sort of stuff as grist for the mill.

I hear a rumbling. It may be a Kickstarter. It may involve Speculate! and Gregory Wilson. More news soon. I promise. #speculateks

Fighting hard to shed my adult voice and find my middle grade voice. Found a fun addition to a scene just now. Brightens up the entire chapter.

Episode 100 of Speculate! features a writing discussion based on Garth Nix's and Sean Williams' Troubletwisters. We also do a small retrospective on the 99 other episodes. Ok, not each and every one, but it was fun to reminisce about the show and to see how far we've come.

I've been here several times because I'm a bit of a pizza nut. They do a very nice job with their pizzas. The decor is nice and interesting. And the service has always been nice and attentive. Well worth a try if you enjoy a good slice.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a nice, if corporate, area of Shelton. The food was of the highest quality. I had the buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, and artichoke antipasto plate, and it was excellent. The rose of salmon was very nicely balanced. The strong cherry and balsamic sauce mixed well with the salmon and horseradish mashed potatoes. And the tiramisu had a very luscious and delicate flavor. If I had any quibbles, it was that the salmon was very slightly undersalted, and the tiramisu had too much cocoa powder. But really, these were very minor complaints. The food was some of the highest quality I've ever had. Worth it if you're looking for a swank place to have a special dinner.

I called Weather Tight after seeing such good reviews. However, I never got past the initial phone call. They asked if I was married. I said yes. They then proceeded to ask that I pick a time that my wife and I were both available. I was not trying to exclude my wife--far from it--but we're both busy, so I said I would be the only one meeting with them. At which point they flat out refused to schedule the appointment with me. I understand that they want to sell to both the husband and wife, but I completely disagree with an insistence that both be there simply to come out and provide an estimate. I told them no thanks and moved on. Sigma Exteriors, which also got great ratings, scheduled this simple appointment with no problems, so I'll be going with them.
