Airship Mania!

25 Sep

I was just browsing through videos on YouTube the other day, looking for anything related to dieselpunk, and I came across a few documentary videos about airships that are actually pretty darn cool.

One is a 3-part series covering a broad history of airships, beginning from the late 1800s up until today.  The other uses actual black and white footage along with the journal entries of Lady Grace Drummond Hay, who was a journalist and also the first woman to travel around the globe via air! I’ve found the latter video particularly interesting.  The narrator did a wonderful job, and the writings of Lady Drummond were delightful. (There’s even a side plot about a forbidden romance.)

Just a little something I wanted to share. 🙂 If you’re interested in airships, those are definitely worth checking out!

In other news, I’ve managed to get some editing done this weekend on a couple of scenes. Today, I’m reviewing a scene in which my main characters unexpectedly learn more about the history of their enemy through one of their team members, who admits he once was a member of a secret society…

…along with the leader of The Enemy.  Hmmmm…  (Yeah, he might want to explain that one, right?)

At this rate, sticking to weekends to get editing done, I could actually wrap these edits up within the next couple of months! Just got to make time for it. That’s the key. I’m also taking less side jobs, as a result. So far, I haven’t regretted doing so. I find I’m much happier working on the novel, actually.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I found the second video myself, but haven’t watched it yet.
    Time, time!

    Your progress sounds good 🙂
    Hey, what about NaNo? I’m trying to get ready for a new project (though i’m still working on my trilogy too). Are you taking part?

      I know, time… Flies by so quickly!

      I’ve never participated in NaNo before, but it might be something for me to try in the future, since I do want to writer other novels! Guess it just depends on timing, as well. If I’m at a good place to start a new project or not. 🙂

      Starting a new project sounds exciting! What kind of story will yours be?

        Historical fantasy again, again in the same years (1924 this one)
        I’m researching Weimar Germany at the moment and I’m loving it. This is where Europe as we know it today was born. It’s exiting learning my own history 🙂
