[used to be] Something horse related in 1888

It's unclear what this building used to be, but there's an engraved horse's head under the 1888 year marker.  It's now a number of small shops.

This time, for sure

I did NaNoWriMo in 2015 and made my 50,000 words.  But at the end of November, I was tired of writing and tired of that story.  That's my usual state and so I usually just give up and "publish" my stories, unedited, on my old blog, even if I mean to someday go back and edit.

This year, I didn't do that because I might really edit it first.  I was pointed to this article about how to edit your NaNo book.  I have done the re-read and now I'm on step 2, the story edit.

There was a lot wrong with the middle of my story -- it didn't flow well, was awkward and just weird.  I've spent the last few days thinking about how it could change to correct that.  I have a whole new character and a whole new set of scenes to write.  I think it will improve things, but we'll see.  Maybe by March I'll have it in a better form.


[used to be] No. 7 Engine Company

The No. 7 Engine Company was rebuilt in 1905.  It is now a cocktail bar and restaurant.
