Elizabeth part 14 and some bloggish thoughts

I keep thinking about the other thread of Fights - the one about Our Trump Year and my feelings re all that. I abandoned that for this story back in early Summer, and am glad, but ... all of that is of course still going on, still provides the background for most days (even if I'm not reading news or allowing it much space in my mind). Maybe I'll write up an ending for the year. 

I've also been working for a couple of years on a long story about an exchange trip to Quebec; something like 30 pages. It's sort of approaching done-ness now, and a discussion today with Marjan sorted out a missing piece I was stuck on. 

Anyway. Here's Elizabeth 14.
