It’s well known that a granny unit, cottage or bungalow without a writer properly installed in it is really just a big doghouse. Finding a dog large enough for that kind of real estate could cost you thousands and the cleanup even more. Also, a dog, no matter what its size, cannot provide valuable “literary escrow” nearly as well as an actual scribe.
But don’t fret — writer Daedalus Howell is available to increase the value of your dwelling by staying in it as long as it takes. Be the envy of your neighbors when your pad is commemorated with an official “Daedalus Howell slept here” plaque. You deserve it. Especially if you live in the Wine Country.
