  2. #30 Cat won’t stay filed People ask all the time, how long does it take to write a book. I always reply it depends on a great deal of things like how much research needs to be done, how active the muse, what’s going on with the family and the cats… Cats? What do cats have … Continue reading » The post Reason #30: Why writing takes so long appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article

  4. Anyone who has dealt with young children knows the misery teething can bring, not just to the baby, but the entire household. Modern parents expect teething to begin at about five months, ushering in fussiness, sleep disruption and drooling, but nothing more difficult or dangerous than that. Twenty four hundred years ago, though, Hippocrates warned … Continue reading » The post Dangerous, even deadly: Teething in Jane Austen’s World appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination.

  5. Ok, so I’m als a sucker. You asked for chapters weekly…I guess I’ll do chapters weekly now. How about we check in with exactly what Darcy is up to as well.

  7. A Jane Austen Mashup Short Story. What happens when Emma meets Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice? A wedding perhaps? Find other chapters HERE. Saturday morning—Friday was unfortunately too soon for the butcher to prepare Emma’s order—Elizabeth stood before the mirror in her second best gown. No, it was not new, but it was silk, and pale blue, … Continue reading » The post Snowbound at Hartfield Chapter 16 appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article
  8. It kind of goes without saying that historical fiction takes tons of research. Tons. Literally heaps and gobs of it. Great stacks and piles. I thought my doctoral dissertation took a lot of research. That was nothing in comparison to the thousands of pages I have read and saved on my hard drive. History=Research. OK. … Continue reading » The post What do Show Chickens have to do with Dragons? Everything! appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article

  11. A Jane Austen Mashup Short Story. What happens when Emma meets Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice? A courtship for Elizabeth Elliot perhaps? Find other chapters HERE. Mrs. Darcy squealed like a little girl and pounced on them. It really was quite sweet, in a very familiar sort of way. Familiar was … nice … quite nice. … Continue reading » The post Snowbound at Hartfield Chapter 15 appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article
  12. It can’t possibly be a surprise that I read tons of history articles each week. I just can’t help myself–I’ve got to share some of the fascinating things I’ve come across. Here are a few of my recent favorites: Odd Jobs: Clowns, Jesters, and Fools in Medieval and Tudor England Even … Continue reading » The post History A’la Carte March 2017 appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination.

  13. I’d like to welcome Kyra Kramer today as she shares a fascinating article on Regency Medicine and how it was more medieval than modern. There would be significant changes in health care in the later decades of the 1800s, with the emergence of germ theory producing biomedicine as we would recognize it by the Edwardian age. … Continue reading » The post Regency Medicine: Betwixt and Between by Kyra Cornelius Kramer appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination.

  15. A Jane Austen Mashup Short Story. What happens when Emma meets Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice? A woman who looks very fine a riding habit perhaps? Find other chapters HERE.
