Next – If you were unsure about the genre Steampunk, Richard Dee shares the background and an excellent example to illustrate the finer points.

Now an amazing post by Gwendolyn Plano writing for Story Empire on writing characters within a political or wartime environment. She uses the amazing story of War Correspondent Marie Colvin as an example and if you have not seen the film A Private War I can highly recommend.

It is wonderful when we can meet those friends we have made online in real life.. Pete Springer​ was on a road trip to visit his brothers and took the opportunity to meet up with one of the communities favourites, Jennie Fitzkee​ spending time in her classroom much to the entertainment of her students. Some lovely photographs of his time there and of Jennie and her husband. Jennie also posted a delightful post about Pete’s day in her classroom so you get a ‘twofer’

  2. Thanks so much for sharing my meeting with Jennie. We may be more than 3,000 miles apart, but I will continue to be one of her biggest cheerleaders, Sally. (Where did I put my pom poms?) I am ecstatic about meeting Jennie, her husband, coworkers, and students. They’ve got many great things going on at her school.
