Yet another area I now have to research: mercantile and trade laws in Regency England. Specifically, how easy it would be for someone to open a business? Would there be guild membership issues? Would there be business license or zoning issues?
This is the benefit of waiting until I was nearly thirty to start writing for publication: I know to ask these kinds of questions.
My frequent reading on impediments-to-business issues doesn’t hurt, either. In the end all my interests and awarenesses feed into one another. Synergy. In the end everything is synergy.
