I love [brackets] when I’m writing, plus the draft of Chapter 27

Sometimes, when I’m writing I use brackets to keep myself from wandering off to research something Right Then. This results in things like the following sentence from my WIP.

The upstairs parlour was [description of a nice Victorian room].

or sometimes, I just don’t want to think about it because I’ll lose the rhythm of dialogue so just write:

“Would you fetch some coffee and that [food] Miss [name] sent over?”

The folks reading my draft of The Transfigured Lady sometimes get to see those brackets* and sometimes I fix them before I post. Speaking of… there’s a new chapter of The Transfigured Lady up, for those of you reading along.

*And if you are reading along and want your name in one of those brackets, let me know in your chapter comments.
