We’re doing a steampunk week over at GeekMom, so pop in this week and check out the articles.
I’m particularly taking notes on the Steampunk tea post that we’ll be running but we also have a giveaway going all week as well.
And just in time, I finished my steampunk detective story and sent it off to my editor. Wish me luck.
I learned a few things while writing it:
1. Doyle was a genius at creating mysteries. They are *hard.*
2. World-building is needed even in a short story. That took the longest to sort out.
3. Why did I wait so long to write a Sherlock Holmes-type story? That was So. Much. Fun. Even the title was fun. “The Case of the Brimstone Contract.”
