I should have known when I got these earrings.

Things I like: new story ideas when they have not been so thick on the ground in the last few months.

Things I do not so much like: when those new story ideas use my own family history as a very direct springboard.

I think the only thing for it is to write "Printer's Oak" when it needs to be written and then run it by Mom to make sure there aren't more serial numbers that need filing off for her to be comfortable with me sending it around; on the other hand, when the main character's great-grandparents are printers and a few other things that mine were, I'm not sure how much the serial numbers would come off. It's just that it turns out a lot of things make sense if you figure my great-grandfather was one of the Sidhe, is the thing. I have had this experience of reading history before, but not our history. Mostly the history of the Finns.
