Rewrites: Don't Let the Red Ink Give You the Blues

When I finished my recent rough draft of Aether Legions, over ninety thousand words, I celebrated briefly. Next I sent my work to trusted writing companions to review and provide commentary on. When I say 'trusted' I mean that I value and encourage their criticisms and they've no compunctions about pointing out the flaws in my work. It's very important to have that first gut check come from trusted sparring partners. Every blow they drive home now helps me dodge the harsher, more punishing…

Myths in Writing

Image

Popular fiction and the imaginations of many portray writers tucked in a cozy office or nestled in the corner of a quaint coffee shop, hammering away with a thoughtful squint or crazed scowl on their faces. They toil alone and eventually hand their manuscript to their publisher after a montage of such scenes.

     My writing started in the wee hours behind a hotel reception desk. Tired…

The Jekyll and Hyde of Writing

                Writing and rewriting are two sides of the same coin but each takes a different kind of mindset to accomplish. Most folks think of writing when they imagine what writers do; scribbling creative characters, scenes; oozing creativity onto the page into the wee hours of the night. Beginning…

Hertha Ayrton: the Feminist Tesla

Although the 19th and early 20th Centuries produced an extraordinary number of eccentric genii, Steampunk attention seems focused on only a few (Tesla, Babbage, &c.) As the editor of a site devoted to 19th Century physics, I occasionally come across historical figures who, I think, would greatly enliven the mix. One of these is…

Bringing steam to young readers.

My name is Sherlock. Not kidding, it's my real name. Actually it's my family name. I come from the Sherlock family. And when I was a boy, I was told by everyone I met at school, that my name was shared by a famous character from the 1800s, Sherlock Holmes.

 

Now, when I was growing up I discovered Dr.Who and started reading the related books. This passion for reading and stories led me to University and I became a writer. One day I finally realised, Dr.Who is really Sherlock…
