As you (like Google) may know, author Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago today. He was a peculiar person, being obsessive-compulsive, a practical joker and an egomaniac and all, but he was pretty odd as a writer, too. He published his novels in weekly or monthly installments before he finished them, which must have been nerve-wracking for author and editor alike.
Serial writing, one episode at a time, without a predetermined ending. Maybe we should think of Dickens as a sort of Victorian blogger.
