Steampunk Reloaded

Now the site is back on its legs, I give you this.

My last hurrah over at Ecstatic Days

Thanks to Jeff VanderMeer for letting me blogsit over at the memory cathedral. Less thanks for leaving me with Evil Monkey, although I understand why no kennel would take him.

Blogsitting at Ecstatic Days

I’m one of the folk blogsitting for Jeff VanderMeer over at Ecstatic Days.

General Rules for blogsitting:

1. Water the plants;

2. Don’t break the good china or crystal;

3. Don’t drink the cellar dry and replace all the wine with red cordial;

4. Don’t get eaten by the cats and never, ever trust what the monkey tells you.

Over the next few weeks …

The Door to the House of VanderMeer

Well, not really, but this is an awesome post for writers http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2010/01/06/finch-novel-opening-chapters-discarded-approaches/. In which Jeff discusses his opening chapters of Finch, the bits he left in, the bits he left out and why, and some interesting comments on authorial intention.

Crafty goodness.
