New Babbage's Maceholder, Mister Aeolus Cleanslate, speaks about this exciting new project:

The City of New Babbage is a consensual hallucination of a steampunk city in a time that never was. It’s built out of bits and prims in SecondLife (instead of bricks and plaster), but it’s as “real” a place as Paris or Mumbai. People from all over the world “go” there daily to build fantastic machines, fight krakens, and roleplay vast, open-ended storylines replete with mad scientists, street urchins and evil geniuses.

We also write stories. With a few exceptions, none of us are professional writers, and few write enough to generate complete works. But for all that, the stories are immensely entertaining and sometimes excellent. We’ve assembled pages and pages of them – and want to share them with the world.

Pre-Order Tales of New Babbage, Vol. 1

New Babbagers wishing to become involved should read this informative post!

Writing for the Primgraph

Sitting in my factory in the Academy of Industry in New Babbage, hard at work writing for the next issue of the Primgraph magazine. (http://primgraph.blogspot.com/). My floating steam writing desk hovers off the floor and was created by Vian Magic. My 'SteamBook Pro' was created by Trilobyte Zanzibar. My animated writing chair (which allows me to really type) is by Lexa Rivera. My custom Seraph uniform is by BlakOpal Designs. Immersed in the music of Steampunk Radio Riel, reasonably safe in New Babbage, what could possibly go wrong?

Writing for the Primgraph

The 2nd anniversary issue of Prim Perfect is out! Reading it via the Calameo.com site is my recommendation, as it gives you the full magazine experience, right down to the crispy sound of turning the pages. It's right here: Prim Perfect Issue Issue #17

The whole issue is well worth reading cover to cover, but if you're in a hurry, here are my article contributions. *grin*

Page 24: Home Expo 2009 (though I should mention that I only collected some of that info, I believe one of the other staff writers polished up and completed the article)

Page 53: Country Living in Neufreistadt

Page 62: An Interview with Leyla Firefly, Builder and Second Life Romantic (my favorite article, please read it!)

Page 68: Special Feature: Five Sims Filled with Love and Creativity

Page 114: Advice for Newcomers: Controlling your Inventory, Notecards and Landmarks

Also, as part of the second year anniversary festivities, the entire staff is featured in "Looking Back: Two Years of Prim Perfect". Ceejay's wee bit is on page 107 in that article!

Whew. No wonder April felt like such a busy month! *flops*

You may already know that I work for my living in Second Life. My typist (or benefactor, as my good friend Caliburn Susanto likes to call his shadowed supporter) does not fund my existence. Most of my income is derived from my work as a reporter for the Primgraph and Prim Perfect magazines, and creating burlesque acts for the New Champagne Rooms. Today I stumbled across another magazine that I might entertain notions of writing for: Role Magazine. I'm awaiting some clarification of their writer's guidelines and compensation right now.

My explorations of SL magazine news today also led me to a thoughtful article, prompted by the closing down of Runway Magazine. Leaving A Legacy talks about things we don't want to happen, but we should be realistic - nothing is forever, after all, and even more so in a virtual world. Sims come and go, friendships can end with the click of a button, everyone's situation and interests are up for grabs. As much as I am able, I enjoy living a 'stable' life, and have no plans to give up my Cafe property, my rental loft, my work at the New Champagne Rooms, or my writing projects. I am a 'keeper' personality. But I'm also a realist, and try to understand when the land beneath my high-prim shoes sometimes shifts.
