Thank you!!
Does anyone here write steampunk? Would anyone be interested in a steampunk group? I have one, but it has been inactive for many years - it seemed interest had "lost its steam." If there is interest, I would love to launch an auction, gather some GPs and work on getting the boilers up and running again!

Here is a list of themes for Steampunk, for those who are interested in learning more:

There are 287 "reading" items that use the Steampunk genre in the search listings, and 299 items of all types. These may be good starting places to check for potentially interested parties who are still active on the site:

Who's this taking my name in vain? Oh, a recommendation. Sadly, too late. I last wrote steampunk, what, three years ago? Last year I taught a steampunk course for "WDC Writers University. I had to call in favors to get 10 people to sign up, then only two completed the coursework despite prizes waiting on the table. That reminds me, I need to get hot and refund all those GPs... First thing January, I think.

For about four months recently I tried to operate a steampunk group. I collected a few members but couldn't get anyone interested in anything. I finally gave it up and closed the group. Lots of work, no return, you know? But I wish you luck; maybe they'll take you more seriously than they did me...

Read well and write better,

Thank you for the poem - and for stopping by my notebook!
*MChoco* Here's a sugar boost for the last couple of days for your novel. Wishing you the best as this challenge comes to a close. *Heart*
Really? I can't even get rid of election hoopla and other b.s. here? Ugh. Nowhere is safe, I guess. Oh wait - I'm writing a novel. Guess what? NO ONE in my novel is talking about the election! Score!! *Rolling* I think I'll go back there.
just a friendly reminder that you are a ray of sunshine, hope you have a lovely day💞

. My prepping this year is bringing as many questions as answers, and I'll be happy to have a bunch of those questions answered before November so I can just concentrate on writing! If you don't do Prep Mo, but you do NaNo... maybe check it out - unless you're a pantser - if you are, I don't know how you do it! *bows deeply*

Last year I didn't do so good with Oct Prep, but this year's going better for me. I'm finding I'm definitely a "Planster", someone who's in between a Planner and a Panster. So some things I have to think about and some things I'm leaving until I actually start to write, or I start writing a chapter and then I'll leave the rest for later. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Oct Prep is worth the look around and maybe even trying out if you've not done it yet. You might be surprised.
Here is a second campfire created by the Steampunk Author's Guild. This one is a character sketch for Phineas Cavendish. All are welcome to join! :
