Hello, November! It’s National Novel Writing Month again — or #NaNoWriMo as it’s also called. I have more going on than usual, so this year I’m doing the editing version. I’m bookizing the third 1920s novel of Pip and Granny Phanny’s adventures, A Ghost in the Kitchen — Three Ingredients 2. I’ll keep you updated on that.
Now it’s time for another Hidebound Hump Day, and another chapter of the spontaneously written, #SteamPunk serial, Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.
Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers
Chapter 15. Cornelis had thought they had gotten a good distance away from their pursuers. Then the handsome innkeeper, Ignatius Belle showed up on a paddle steamer. Belle, in true Victorian straightlaced form, objected to Felicity and Copper traveling with a man, and apparently being stranded.
Not wanting to reveal the existence of the road locomotive, the alchemist made made up the excuse that some old family friends were on the way to pick them up.
Then they saw another group of presumed foes headed toward them. For reasons only the Woman in Trousers could understand, Felicity let Ignatius know about the road locomotive they had hidden. To everyone’s surprise, Ignatius volunteered to draw the group of villains away so our heroes could escape.
