    Getting Back There (Steampunk and Neo-Victorianism)

    So you're a bit of a writer. Yeah, you could write a steampunk book. Hell, you could even make it a series (of books). My advice to you is seeing you don't have to go to work and you spend most of your day here, how about you take a break and start writing a boo, or whatever you want to write! You might as weill crack on with something

    Getting Back There (Steampunk and Neo-Victorianism)

    Well, I liked editing, but as I said the industry has been hard hit. Even retail is too physical for me (too much standing and shelf-stocking) so it has to be office work or work from home.

    Actually, I need to stop dicking around with my day and write. I might be able to get published in lit mags. My writing professor thought I was the most polished/most ready in the class. Guess, I could try steampunk.

    Neat! Yeah, you should try to get a job my freind. Tell me, what do you want to do with your life eventully? What job do you want eventully?

    Yeah, when I was really young, I liked the whole Victorian thing, when I was in my 8-10s, I got fed up with it all, mainly because I was different ennougth from everyone else, but in my teens, I enjoyed living in a bigger house than everyone else.

    Also since the last post, I've gotten into steampunk! I brought a steampunk clock on my Birthday, and I've started reading a new steampunk title.

    LOL. Just noticed this reply.
    Yeah, I could machine wash everything but the vests (waistcoats on your side of the pond)—they'd fall apart. I just hate ironing the shirts.
    Definitely need a job, but probably have to switch professions. Academic editing is few and far between nowadays. Medical problems have delayed my return to work (but also gotten me government money ).
    And oddly enough, I also grew up in the American equivalent of a Victorian house. I grew up in a town house converted from an early nineteenth century schoolhouse!

    You should try and find a job. I've been thinking about getting into steampunk, but not neo-victorianism (I used to wear suits when I was at school a while instead of the standard hoodies and t-shirts, but eventuly got fed up of being a luagthing stock behind my back, so I switched to normal clothes, and I found that I actuly preferd it, so i've stuck with it to this day.)I also lived in a victorian house when I was a kid, so that might have encouraged me to take an interest in steampunk. By the way, do you realy need to dryclean your suits, when I used to wear them, I only washed the trousers in a washing machine and tumble dryer.

    Stupid Hulu Ads

    It's worse when you click on something that IS relevant to you. Then they'll just keep showing the same damn ad over and over again.
