Post teasers of bits you worked on that day. I'll start with my ultra boring history NaNoWriMo project:
Boston was one of the main areas for post-colonial trade, and Joseph Barrell was among the wealthiest merchants in the fledgling nation. He had many projects, including “merchant ships…fishing craft, whalers, and coasters” (Scofield 38). Inspired by Captain Cook’s voyage, Barrell had gotten it into his head to send an expedition to China. Without the internet and easy ways to purchase articles from around the world, the colonies had to be content with what came into their ports. This meant that tea, silks and other exotic goods were in great demand. The same was true of China, for they were enamoured of sea otter furs from the Northwest Coast of what later became the United States.
