Hi, I love this blog so much and it gives me great tips on writing! But I was wondering if you have some links or tips on how to write in a steampunk style? It's for the novel I'm currently writing.

A Victorian Lady’s finishing touch—the chatelaine. (From Wikipedia)

A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with a useful household appendage such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc.
Chatelaines were worn by many housekeepers in the 19th century and in the 16th century Dutch Republic,where they were typically used as watch chains for the most wealthy. Similar jewellery was also worn by Anglo Saxon women, as seen from the burial record, but its function is uncertain. The name chatelaine derives from the French term châtelaine

How Steampunk Screws With Victorian Gender Norms | Bitch Media

beyondvictoriana:

Bitch magazine covers gender roles in steampunk and gives some interesting commentary about the different impressions created between the aesthetics, science fiction texts, and the subculture community (she also gave some great references to several people in the community for their imput, including Lisa Hager's work on Tor.com.

The biggest critique I have about the article is the author’s argument that women writers of the genre write only about “soft” topics — like romance and urban fantasy elements— and somehow, just by including these elements they don’t also automatically address the tougher social issues that women and marginalized groups face in their stories. Women steampunk writers can be just as critical in their work as men can be when writing about social and cultural politics and tying that into hard technology and science (and wait, women write about those topics too!). In fact, I think that female writers tend to be *more* eager to go into depth about the sociopolitical and economic issues and other “-isms” *while at the same time* adding more fantastical elements into their fiction.

If some old fogey peering through his smudged bifocals can’t discern the cool and important stuff going on, such as the tsunami of anarchic multiculturalists using the steampunk scalpel to dissect the past and reassemble it like a two-dollar watch, that’s his loss; the readers are picking up on it.

(Glad to see the man who coined steampunk giving a shout-out to what the genre is becoming.)
