In Which Gail Must Look Up 7 Strange Things (Behind the Magic)

Research - Tea and Books

music: Galactic Watercooler Podcast

Some odd things I’ve had to look up, so far, for Book the Third:

  • Species of daphne
  • The name of the knob thing at the top of a banister (finial)
  • The anatomy of a ladybug (part of the beetle family, as it turns out)
  • Actual definition of a portmanteau
  • History of Soho

Have I mentioned recently how much I enjoy being a writer?

In other news, gentle reader, I’m busily collecting public domain (or the equivalent) images of parasols on the Parasol Protectorate’s Facebook page. Please feel free to contribute your photo to the madness.
