Hello Guys:) Thought I would catch up with you for a quick moment, because I am all kinds of excited, since I have started researching my upcoming new short which will have SteamPunk Tendencies! ,lol I have entered the Author/Media Consultant BK Walker’s Spring Bound Writing Challenge! Sponsored by the Face Book Group Coffee & Books!
Take the challenge.

10,000 – 20,000 words makes a novella around 100 pages
50,000 – 55,000 words makes a novel around 200 pages
So-o-o-o- I have always been a little curious about STEAMPUNK...the name was cool, and I always liked the outfits and gadgets associated with that genre:) ,lol So I decided to create a short with SteamPunk Tendencies:) But I had to do my research…started with…yep, that’s right…good ole Wikipedia, which says…
“Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialisedWestern civilisation during the 19th century. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era orAmerican “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.”
Hmmm, even after reading the definition, I still found myself scratching my head! So I figured I needed to do MORE research, and I did a search on Goodreads, and found some awesome titles tagged as STEAMPUNK...I’ll definitely try them out!:)
Now I will keep you guys in the loop on the challenge and Guys, you are invited to join Coffee & Books and the writing challenge on Face Book:O)
