As promised, here are some pics from the steampunk expo in Oklahoma City. Enjoy!

I had so much fun browsing wares, attending a Victorian tea party, and listening in on workshops at this event. I also got to meet steampunk writer Cherie Priest, who had some practical advice for those waiting periods between manuscript submissions: "Just keep on writing books and reading more books. That's all you can do". I agree. That kind of focus on craft takes the anxiety away. And getting to play dress-up every once in a while doesn't hurt, either!
