Indulging in the Arts
So I went home, let all the sensory input wash over me and not only finished my now close to 5,000 word streampunk, short story, The "Foxglove Broadsides" but also started designing and creating the Victorian corseted bustle dress in green satin and faux duponi copper-colored silk that I'll be wearing for the daytime part of the Upstate Steampunk Con. I have another outfit chosen for the ball in the evening that's more appropriate for dancing.
Becky and I had our writers group sitting out in the garden which has never looked so lovely. One of my foxgloves is five feet tall! I'm only an a few inches taller! And you wonder why I wrote about foxgloves. Well, there's much more to that story, my dears! Much much more!
