Chicago Library Seeks Hermione Granger

Stobhach Gaelach and Soda Farls

  It’s a rare writer who doesn’t get seduced down many a research black hole in an effort to bring the very best story to her readers. And by black hole I mean information so fascinating, alarming, and/or delicious she just might keep clicking and reading and reading and clicking a teensy bit longer than the need for information might justify.

Today was a day of writerly ups [revisions, and rereading, and swelling with emotions–all the feels!–even though I wrote it myself and have been over and over it before] and downs, omg downs [spending hours making very little progress on revisons when I get stuck on word usage–would Persephone have used the word ‘babe in...
