Very pretty pictures. At least that first one.  ;D

Were shoemakers lazy? What's the difference between a shoemaker and a cobbler? Were they always poor and did they always have elves?

The latest installment in my series History for Fantasy Writers is now up at Mythic Scribes.

I have a new entry on History for Fantasy Writers. This one is the second in a series on time. It's about short periods of time like minutes and seconds.
https://mythicscribes.com/history/have-a-moment/

The first entry is here. It's on years, months, weeks.

I love a good mill. I wonder what other sorts of weird and wonderful mills one could invoke: sun mills, luck mills, mills of war. No idea how they'd work but they could cool to me :)

Another entry in my series, History for Fantasy Writers.

I have a new article over at Mythic Scribes. This one is on carpenters. Not the band.
