One of the hardest things about being a writer is having an enormous plot twist and not being able to tell anyone.  I’m working my way through issue 3 of Toolbox Tales, and adding hints for issue 4 and 5 and I can’t tell anyone what’s going to happen and I wish I had more people reading it so that I could revel in their gasps.  The hardest thing is knowing when to reveal something, I don’t have a lot of Toolbox Tale Readers and probably won’t for a while and I don’t want to reveal something now that could ruin the anticipation for other people down the line.

At least the plotting is fun…

So, let me guess— you just started a new book, right? And you’re stumped. You have no idea how much an AK47 goes for nowadays. I get ya, cousin. Tough world we live in. A writer’s gotta know, but them NSA hounds are after ya 24/7. I know, cousin, I know. If there was only a way to find out all of this rather edgy information without getting yourself in trouble…

You’re in luck, cousin. I have just the thing for ya.

It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?

I got your back, cousin. Just head over to Havocscope.

((PS: In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports. It’s perfectly legal, no need to worry about the NSA hounds, cousin ;p))

I’m teaching a genealogy class in a couple days, and I’m going a bit crazy.  Sorry to anyone who’s commented or send me a message that I haven’t answered yet.  I’m getting to it.  It’s just that creating a presentation and handout is a lot of work.

Answer
  • Question: I saw your post on the flower language and will now follow you in hope of getting more flower knowledge~ ♡ - the-akatsuki-rp
  • Answer:

    I have had anything to say through bouquets lately, but if there’s something you’re dying to have in flowers feel free to ask.

Answer
  • Question: Okey, I think part of what threw off my calculations was Rooster saying "hurrah for summer!" in Bantam Wars though according to your timeline W had just picked him up from school for the winter holidays. Cheers! :) - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Well, that’s a mistake I forgot to correct, things were a bit mad when I was coming down on the wire and I was more focused on plot points then timelining.  I think I decided not to bother with it because Rooster’s grasp of time is a bit weak anyway.

Answer
  • Question: So, re-reading the wee series reminded me of something I was never able to make sense of. I get a vibe like you had timelines all figured out but never bothered incorperating them beyond hints immediately relevant to the plot. How much time was on streets/at 221B/school/in France? What months/seasons? Theoretically, was W captured/shot shortly after Moran's death to reach that stage of (retarded) recovery, 'cause texting/orcistrating prior under heavy pain meds is not quite plausible. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I can’t find my original notes, but here’s the rough estimate of what happened.  According to BBC canon (the johnwatsonblog.co.uk) Study in Pink happened 7 Feb, the Blind Baker on the 28th of March and the Great Game in April.  But in AU land the explosion at Bailey’s hideout takes the place of the first Great Game.  So he’s on the street about three months.  So all of Wee Doctor happens in about three and a half months.

    Moriarty puts off the Great Game to observe John and hints of W, and John is with Sherlock until it starts to get cool, September.  So at 221B five months.  Then about two weeks at school.  

    Then a month at the cottage and another month in Paris.  So John is reaged in the end of November, at that point his old gunshot wound reappeared and then started to scar over.  The trauma caused to the area was from the rapid healing and the ghost of infection past gave him a bit of swelling and fever, he has a few stitches, but mostly because of being dragged up through the sewers.  So at this point the pain medication is lovely, but not do or die. Like one might feel a few days after having your tonsils out, except in the shoulder. Then by the time John goes to pick up Roost it’s December.  They spend a week in London before the wedding.  By the time John meets with Sherlock as W in 221B his scar tissue is completely formed and it looks like a complete scar, a new scar, but a complete one.  Then the story ends in the beginning of January.  Not that there’s any symbolism in that.

    Hope that answered your question!

  • Question: this is a super old post of yours and i'm not sure if you've been asked this before, but where did you learn the stuff about flower language? most internet searches i've done have led to really generic things like love/honesty/etc and nothing neat. do you have any site or book recs? thank you for your time! - futuringboy
  • Answer:

    Thank you for asking!  I applaud your curiosity!  I did a post about this before here, I’d suggest anything by Kate Greenaway.  She was pretty much awesome, she was an author/illustrator who won her first art award at seventeen and worked with a publishing company that focused on printing books affordable to the general public.  And I enjoy the sweetness and optimism in her work. 

    I also discovered I’d left off Dumont’s The Floral Offering, so check that out too!  Enjoy~
