Distractions, Pax Britannica, and how I am a Geek

I blame Tama. It’s all his fault, as it often is.

He comes up with these beginnings, these ideas, and then he throws them at me and I can’t help but get sucked into them…

and so Pax Britannica: Being an age of Steam and Magic was born.

Yes, we’re geeks.

It’s fun though! So much fun! We even found ourselves some steampunk names…. geeks I say….

We’re hoping it will turn out to be a nice little collaborative world building venture, hoping that other people will want to come play with us eventually too. I’ve never done steampunk before so it’ll be interesting, I’m already getting story ideas from it!

It was only set up yesterday, and we’ve restricted it to one entry or edit per day which means that the project can’t totally consume us or keep us from our other writing. I see it as being a little treat I can give myself at some point during the day though – lovely.

Anyway, check it out if you’re interested. Contact Tama or myself if you think you want to participate – we’re going to work the kinks out for the first week but after that intend to let other people jump on board too.

  1. *grins* hehe. Wouldn’t you know that an idea would come along just after I tentatively start writing again. Isn’t that how it always works?

  2. Worldbuilding in a steampunk world – how cool is that.

    That steampunk name generator gives me the name Sir Richard Hammerman – must use that šŸ™‚

  3. Lol, Hammerman, love it! I found out that if you use caps you get different results as well šŸ˜‰ And of course I have a married and a maiden name that I could try out to see what I liked best šŸ˜‰ lol
    It’s fun so far! Never done anything like it before.

  4. The capitalised version isn’t as good – Bennet Herndon. Will stick with the first version.

    The problem now is not to think up a story to but the name in…must resist.

  5. Steampunk – kewl!

    I’ve been working on some outlines for some steampunk (clockpunk actually) stories myself set in a world of science, magic, and horror.

    I must resist… the.. urge… to… chase… another creative outlet. Gah, who am I kidding!

    I greet thee as Monastic Brother Simeon Aldridge, humble servant of her Glorious Majesty and our Holy Father.

    The rumours of thefts from our order’s most sacred manuscript collections are entirely false, I assure you. I have merely left the cloister to better minister to my poor down-trodden fellows.

    May they yet drink from the cup of ambrosia that is the glory of God.

    We are all Children of Creation, frightened and fascinated by turns.
