Unexpected Connections I don’t delude myself that my blog serials are “properly” written stories.  They are pure unplanned, pantser fun.  Since I never know what the next episode will bring, I can’t do advance planning so that everything is properly connected from the beginning.

Three Ingredients – 12: Rye, Pie, Dainty Dish

With the exception of Pip, our story’s narrator, the character who seems to get the most interest is Cracker the parrot.  That amuses me, because Cracker is a character that I never anticipated.

When I researched ways to illustrate this episode I noticed that media topics of interest in the 1920s were much the same as they are now.

While I was browsing around the New York Times, I stumbled upon “The Janeiac Quiz.”  Since I’ve always enjoyed Jane Austen‘s books, I took the quiz — and failed miserably.  I’m sharing it because many of you enjoy those classics.  Emma is probably my favorite of Austen’s works and it is also the source of today’s Three Things.  I’ll take them … More Three Things Serial: 19 – Comfortable Home, Happy Disposition, Vex
