Abney Park

There are lots of people calling themselves ‘Steampunk’ these days, including your truly.  I certainly am not going to wade into the definition wars about what is and isn’t Steampunk. Abney Park, in my opinion, is one of the best, and certainly one of the longest running steampunk bands ever. As several of my readers are interested in the steampunk area, I thought that I would let you know that their new album is out today. I’ve already ordered mine! Listening to their mix of rock and world beat music is what I often use for music to write by.  You can get it here:

And no, the band hasn’t given me anything to tell you this, I just really like them and thought that you might too.

What music do you listen to for Writing inspiration? Is there other steampunk music do you like? What would you recommend?

NaNoWriMo

Hello dear readers,

No I have not fallen off the planet, it is simply that this is NaNoWriMo month. What is that you ask? Go here http://nanowrimo.org/ and all will be answered. In short, it is an exercise where you must write a novel of 50,000 words in thirty days. Outrageous you say? Why yes it is, and also some of the best fun you can ever have. The community is very supportive, and motivating.  I wrote the first Owen Strong novel during NaNo and now there are two novels published and a third on the way, so you can do it!

This is my second year writing in NaNo, and in keeping with this new tradition, I’m writing something some thing different for it. I think that you may just like it a lot. I will let you know more, and the other projects I’ve been doing this last month as I can. Thank you for your patience, the ride is just starting!
