I take years to finish things, not because I am slow, but good things always seem to lead to more good things. Sometimes it's researching history. Sometimes it's gluing together all the mental sticky notes I've collected for a project over a period of years. Sometimes it's interviewing scientific experts. But by the time I have a book or a play that is ready to put out into the world, I also have a mountain of facts and ideas that supported the work but don't really belong in the work. So here are the scrapbooks of fun, interesting tidbits I have collected while working on these projects. I hope you find them as interesting as I did.
