2014 in review

bad timing

So I’m heading off to visit my family in Montana. It was the only time that worked for us. The weather’s supposed to be cold and snowy, so hopefully that means time to sit in front of the fire and write.

More likely, however, I’ll be sitting around chewing the fat with family members and eating too much barbequed ribs and chicken fried steak.

Sparkly!

One of the fun things about writing steampunk is playing with all the pretty Victorian fancy dresses.

Here’s an especially pretty one worn by Princess Eugenie of Sweden:

An older post from a blog showing the variety of dresses you’d need during the day: http://naztybaby.livejournal.com/25562.html?view=213466#t213466

A lot of subtler detail explained in this lovely post: http://trulyvictorian.com/history/1840.html

Oh, and I’m up over 6K for the novel, so it’s coming along nicely.

Would love to own a house on this street

I just realized I forgot to actually publish this photo from last Christmas in New Orleans! Me under the sign of the muse 😀 This neighborhood may or may not play a role in the ghost story in progress (working title Lady in Lace; most of it takes place in the French Quarter), but it’s playing a big role in my psyche since I visited there.

adverse Twitter effects

I got a Twitter account a few months back — I’m @AliceMCole over there.

The unforeseen effect: all my updates happen over there. I never remember to come over here to write a blog post.

Working again!

Finally managed to get in gear and do more than a few lines of work. Ten pages on Crows!

Overamped did not make the cut

Sigh. Oh well.
