So yesterday I was perusing my "Books" directory, looking all my writing projects, and came across a kids story i’d started on. Only a few bits and pieces. The start of the first chapter.
Upon reading my notes ("Bits" word docs) .. it seemed pretty cool. Some of the ideas.
Anyway, there’s a little shop on Fifer street that the main characters (twin boy and girl) visit. The bus stop is out the front of it.
Using "Fifer Street" when describing the shop seemed important to me.
The little shop on Fifer Street, Odds and Ends.
Anyway, taking a look on the web, which means wikipedia usually, I read up on Fife’s and the Fifer. Pretty cool stuff. A Fife (pipe) was used in folk music, and in battle. You could hear a fife above the sound of guns and such. It was phased out late in the 19th century i think, early 20th in the states (of course, all my knowledge comes from wikipedia).
Cool stuff. I mean, probably boring .. but acquiring random useless information is one of my best talents.
