This will be a short post, as I'm preparing for the Jewish New Year and there is much still to do. Like shower. I've been tossing around the idea of setting a new series in a Steampunk universe, but I don't know much about the universe. I've seen some steampunk movies and read my share of novels, but I'm trying to wrap my brain around the physics and science of such a place. I'd like to know if any of you have suggestions for good material.

I need to know what's been done to death so I can look for a new angle. And I'm looking forward to writing about something that is not steeped in aliens. But there might be mutants, so I'll have a fall guy if I need a villain.

But please, comment and post and let me know what you think so I can get to work on this. I've been working on a non-fiction book so much over the last few days that my brain is starting to become, shudder, logical. I'd like to spend a few hours delving into something completely ridiculous and have some fun. Then I'll come back to the surface and see how much work I can do.

For all of you who are members of the tribe, have a happy and sweet New Year.

And, for you budding writers out there, if you want to add to the conversation, or have a question of your own, I want you to let me know. This blog is not about me. This is about writing in general. I have questions, definitely more than I do answers, but I want a discussion and not a rant. That means I need you to add in your two cents.

Just a thought. But you should totally act on it.
