Profile Information

Introduce yourself!
I am Lexi Orchestra; escapist; dreamer; reader. Im currently working on my MA thesis that explores the temporality and technology of steampunk novels for young adults. In my spare time I read, I drink tea, I write, and take photographs.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?

How did you hear about us?
I was trying to find a video link for the steampunk panel on SLJ day.

At the same time, if nostalgia precipitates actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted time, particularly in one who believes his life to be a failure, then it is an empty thing, doomed to produce nothing but frustration and an even greater sense of failure."  (R. A. Salvatore,…

A Conundrum of Time and History

Posted on June 20, 2011 at 7:30pm 2 Comments

"He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past." --George Orwell, 1984
If we are to believe what George Orwell has said about living in the present to rule over the past and the future, then the present he speaks of is definitely not the age we are in, one where the current fashion is dominated by styles from at least two decades ago, or where cellphones have applications in the likes of Hipstamatic that digitally modify… Continue

So glad you found us, Lexi! Welcome to the Guild. I'd love to hear what you have to say about the temporality of steampunk novels for young adults! As a member of the International Society for the Study of Time, and a YA writer, I have a particular interest in that myself.
