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…

Chapter 23 Episode 9 Act IV



       [ The following segment contains scenes of intense violence.  Viewer discretion is advised. ]





         ACT IV:  Two more soldiers enter behind the baron and both doorways close.



L.T.    You?!?  You're one of the agressivist leaders?



B.L.    Not at all, Lady Tekla!  I am, in fact, THE leader of the movement you so simplemindedly refer to as 'agressivists'.  And to think I almost had you killed before you could bring such interesting, and…

Great Plains Ren Fest 2014 author pavilion!

pics in album

Yesterday got off to a hot, sweaty start, and I was on time, barely.

I set up my table...in the back. The author pavilion was very crowded for this spring one! The fall festival was a lot smaller. It was nice to have a crowded booth, and have lots of people to talk to.  We were beaten up by the wind. The wind was blowing so hard, that it made the tent we used breathe like a jellyfish--constantly flapping and sucking in and out. All the tent stakes would come…

Cosmology

    I recently visited the laboratory of Professor Quackenschtein (the inventor of the optical theory of Darktons), and he related to me some of his current celestial observations.

Professor Q --

    I observed newly-risen Mars low in the eastern sky last night, just after dark, about 8:00. I spotted it by its reddish tinge, amongst the bluish white points of surrounding stars, and my small telescope verified it as a disc.

    A short time later, from a different place,…

Chapter 23 Episode 9 Act III

 ACT III:  The group enter another room.  It is about twice the size of the previous one, and the light has a greenish cast.  The green light is coming from three glowing objects mounted just beneath the ceiling at the centers of three of the four walls.  At the center of the fourth wall are the room's only contents; a chair, a table with several bottles, vials, and other glassware on it, and something like a hospital bed inclined at a 45 degree angle.  A person is lying on the bed.…

The Friday Roundup ~ April 11th, 2014

Okay, friends, with the format established, I'll just jump right in.

Writing Progress:  A week ago I was telling you that I had forgotten how to write, and was contemplating hanging it up.  What a difference a week makes!  The muse returned on April 9th, and I have logged two solid days of writing first draft content on Episode 7.  Hopefully, all that self-doubt is gone; or maybe what's gone is all the drugs that were pumped into my system during my hospital…
