I don't know why but last May I felt a serious compulsion to try a genre I had never written in and it happened to be steampunk.I found it fascinating- the Victorian mixed with gears and gadgets- what's not to love.
I had one of those stories published: Perfect Aside (click to read flash fiction)
I'm still inspired by it almost a year later. I wrote a dozen short stories all in steam punk. I read three or four steam punk books and found them intriguing. I also learned I'm not a fan of blimps. LOL
