Portal:The Dixwell Dossier
|Sa ka fete, amis.
Welcome to the Dixwell Dossier, home to Reginald Routhwick's Unspooled project.
|About this project
Unspooled is a tentative children's book series by Reginald Routhwick, comprising six planned volumes and two side stories. Its original incarnation, Marigot Magic, took part in 2012's National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo for short); its draft "won" with 105,312 words. The winning manuscript from this era is currently available at Smashwords.
This portal is a revival of the original Referata site, formerly located at dixwell.referata.com. (Referata was a service powered by both MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki, and founded by Yaron Koren.) We call it a Dossier, with due respect to the old dictionary definition: "a collection of papers containing detailed information about a particular person or subject (usually a person's record)". This captures part of the essence of what we aim to do here.
As for how the "Dixwell" part came about? In August 2012, author and creator Routhwick found the name on a main street in Hamden, Connecticut, during his summer journeys to various libraries near his adopted hometown of Waterbury. As he remarked back then on the former Google+, "That's the avenue along which its main library, Miller Memorial, stands. You guys rock—the same for your building!"
