Oh, well. Purdey's mostly Scots, and back in Adam Smith's time they used to have 20, so she can do it. :lmao:


Oh, logic can be painful at times! 20 Children, who on earth would want to put herself through that? Now you see why I can't help thinking our ancestors were barking mad. :lol:


I kid you not. Sadly, the reason they'd have 20 was because only two of them would actually survive any length of time. Smith was a decent aristocrat and used to go and ask the regular women about their experiences. When he heard that he was absolutely devastated. :crybaby:

Re: Vignettes

First "Vignettes" update since July (you may want to read back and remind yourself where our characters are). Hoping I can maybe keep the updates semi-regular, but, well, you should see my workload. I suggest you savour it. :wink:

Anyway, it opens up a new little plotline which will structure the next few updates. And it ends on a cliffhanger... :brows: Enjoy. :grin:

I take it I've piqued your interest...? :whistle: Yes, this next plotline's going to be a tense one. I want to try my hand at some suspense...

Btw, if you're seeking out your bookmarks, remember that the very first post in the thread has links to both parts of "Vignettes." :happy:

Yes, it's shameless "keep you reading" gimmick, and it works, so I'm sticking to it. Knowing what happens next--the privilege of being a writer. :wink:

Re: Vignettes

I've been thinking about this series (or whatever you want to call it lately). Life has kept me from writing very much in the past year or so, but with more time, I'm thinking about picking up the threads again. I have a pile of other short fics that I want to finish, and there's also more in the arc to do, but if I finish some stuff off and get back into a writing groove again, is anyone still interested in reading the Vignettes?

Thanks, Philippa. I thought I'd just check and see if anyone even remembered it was around and wanted more. I know it's been awhile.

I'll have to actually write new things, first, but it's good to know there's enthusiasm for new stuff. :grin:
