If you work very hard someday you'll be able to write such illogical things too.

I suppose I ought to change this once in a while, right?

My name is Steph, and I'm a future archivist from northern New Jersey who went to school in Pennsylvania (and will continue school in NYC, hopefully) with a chronic addiction to baseball (I follow a ridiculous number of teams - including fictional ones - in a ridiculous number of leagues, although I suppose the thing you need to know is that I'm a Red Sox fan raised in a Mets family, so I keep up with both of them). The namesake of this journal is a novel I've been working on on-and-off since I was a sophomore in high school set in 1863 London, hence the username 1863_project. The blog was originally created to chronicle my work on the novel, but over time its purpose has shifted to allow me to discuss other things (like, er, baseball, and occasionally military history).
