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.
