Today, I’ve been building up a little world for my steampunk denizens.
I’ve looked at Victorian coins, lurid murder mysteries on steamships and played the wonderful Master and Commander soundtrack – it may be Age of Sail, but it still conjures beautiful images of the sea.
However, it hasn’t all been historical wanderings. I have the unfortunate dynamic of a talkative PI and a silent assassin for about four scenes. I don’t know how the audience can like a person who is never silent, and how they can connect with one who never speaks. That is the challenge du jour.
