…back in 1835, that is
Here is where I am in my simultaneous detailed outline and very rough rough draft of my WiP, set in 1838 Baltimore, with characters who mostly could not afford the lovely dishes advertised just 60 miles south, at the eatery which, for my characters, 3 years later, no longer exists in Washington City, because it had been destroyed by a mob of unemployed young white men (see The Snow Riots for more…) :
3275 words, today, on a 2600 word scene. Oops! The scene is still lacking 1/3 of what I outlined, so I’ll be creating another scene and adding it to my scene list.
So, it turns out that a detailed treatment written in synopsis form is not for me. But a detailed outline as an outline, yes.

4.) Write a blog post or tweet about the Snow Riots, or just a post that tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
