Assuming I could buffer that some with technology and science fiction, I set out to write a work of Steam punk/ science fantasy.

Adventures in teaching myself how to write-Descriptions

In the course of streamlining my descriptions, I think I've learned something. Don't talk to the reader like they're two years old unless it's a children's book.

Rest before the wicked

I've decided to step back from Dixie Aethernaughts for a little bit before I do the final proofing and such. In the meantime have been working on a supernatural Horror tale. You can see an excerpt of it on my blog.
