Today’s sticky is not actually from a story that I have written, but is a note I jotted down because I thought it was interesting. I subscribe to American Scientist’s Science In The News Weekly, and every week they send me an email full of interesting stories published during the week. This past week they sent me an email with a link to a story about the Taino – a native people of Hispaniola – who build houses on stilts over lagoons. While I don’t want to write about the Taino, it did give me an interesting idea to set a future novel in a stilted village above a lagoon. Maybe nothing will come of this sticky, but now I have it just in case.
