My activity

Since I am a novice at this genre, I have been trying to identify my persona and develop my fashion style. So right now, I would say I am still in the discovery phase. My thoughts are gypsy-piratesque with a victorian flair

Extra senses in "fact" and fiction (TFCHM)

      Now that I have mentioned the 7th and 8th senses in my story, I feel compelled to go into my ideas of various "extra" senses, and the fact that I believe some of them can be real.  First I'll describe my numbering convention, and how even that is flawed.

      Why don't I start at 6?  Well, the term "6th sense" was probably a cliche even before I was born, and means different things to different people.  There are even some people who say that the number of "normal"…

Stage Two of Bulding my Persona

Okay, in my last blog post I wrote in the basics form my Steampunk persona. I have reviewed it and have decided to only change one point. Instead of stating the denomination of the Rev. Demetrius, I feel that it may be better to just refer to him as a minister. I know from my own experience than many members of the United Brethren denomination tend to be conservative on many points and due to the direction that I wish to take this character, it would probably be a bit more sensitive to not…

Perseverance is a Highly Underrated Virtue

This is one of my favorite expressions. To the best of my knowledge, I originated it (though I may have heard it in a movie at some point), but I'm sure something close to it was dear to the heart of that famous tortoise that won the race with the hare. It carried me through my recent collapse, coma, and rehabilitation when the doctors were telling my family that they should prepare for the end, and it has carried me through the past ten weeks when all I had to do with my time was write, and…

My persona starting point

So I'm new to this genre, but I think I have my character worked out to a point where I can make a go of it. Here are the basic specs.

  • Name: Rev. Demetrius Robert LaRoth
  • Occupation: United Brethren Minister, Head of the village council of the town that will become New Baltimore Ohio, Captain and Chaplain of the "Swamp Tigers" Volunteer Home Guard Unit.
  • Married to: Ariel Rose MacMarium (tentative name as this is my actual wife's persona and she is still working…

Random Vague Post

I must admit, there isn't much to say, other than I'm excited and nervous about Steampunk Empire Symposium. My first con - should be a lot of fun! I just wish I could skip the 10 hours of driving with a toddler to get there, then the 10 hours driving home.



Spring brings with it the desire to create, so I am deeply immersed in a project at the moment. I know - that's vague. Here - have a writer meme!…

Steel City Con: Report

I went to the con Friday in just shorts and a t-shirt. A number of dealers had to do a doubletake to recognize me because I am usually costumed.



I had registered for a three-day pass earlier in the week but for whatever reason I was not on their list. I had to wait in the rain for a manager to finally show up, look at my receipt and give me a badge.



There were a number of things that caught my eye but I picked up only a single Godzilla DVD and a…
