Little Dorrit (Miss Carriger Recommends)

Gentle Reader, much todo with a stack of 12 reviews due the end of this week and I’m trying to finished Draft 2 of CAKE before May and Book the Third commence. So not been much blogging recently. I am ashamed to neglect you all so.

For research purposes, I highly recommend the BBC’s latest production of Dickens’s Little Dorrit. Not my favorite of his works, but in grand UK TV fashion they treat the story with loving care and great (12 hour) detail. It’s set a little earlier than strictly necessary, mid 1830s, but impeccably well done and brilliantly acted.

Gail’s Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:
The humans are dead.
Your Tisane of Smart:

from Hallmarks of Felinity
Your Writerly Tinctures:
Somehow I missed this. John Mortimer has died. Rumpole was a real favorite of mine throughout childhood, and I suspect Mortimer has had some undue influence on my writing as a result. RIP

CAKE in Space: Done with the red pen, working Draft 2.
Soulless: Awaiting ARC distribution.
Changeless: Gone poof. Starting to gather corrections.
Steampunk short: Out with Gamma.
