Wednesday, November 28, 2018 Welcome back to Hidebound Hump Day, my chuckaboos! (I do love the Victorian vernacular, even if it is harder to use than Roaring Twenties slang.)

Saturday, November 24, 2018 Welcome, everyone. I hope you’ve had a wonder-filled week. Something fun and unexpected happened to me. More on that in a second. First things first.

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Hello, November! It’s National Novel Writing Month again — or #NaNoWriMo as it’s also called. I have more going on than usual, so this year I’m doing the editing version. I’m bookizing the third 1920s novel of Pip and Granny Phanny’s adventures, A Ghost in the Kitchen — Three Ingredients 2. I’ll keep you … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 16
