Welp I've finally stopped looking things up....

Oh yes, I get quite caught up in looking things up.

Today's jewels for me were places about place names.  I like this site in particular, because it has translations for place names in the Isle of Skye, which has some very interesting place names, which I often use for place name inspiration, and a bunch of other stuff about the Hebrides

and this site, too:

Which led me to order this book:

Then I fell back on a strategy of mine that has worked somewhat for me in the past:  Write with a notebook at hand to journal about plot development. 

I started writing.  We'll see how far I get today.  But every journey has to start somewhere.
