Goggles & Lace is the attempt of one aspiring writer to chronicle her journey through the world of speculative fiction, steampunk-philia, and the terrifying effects of her day job. All on an empty imagination.
Salut! I’m Kit. I’ve been running Goggles & Lace since April 2010, and since then it’s gone through many phases. Initially, G&L was a the personal blog of a writer trying to kill time and make friends, participating in odd memes, life updates, and all around
nonsense fun. I started posting “writing advice” pieces from the perspective of a struggling writer with no degree in writing, though they lacked a bit of structure and served more as passionate rants and shouts of encouragement to the others in my position.
I’m aiming for something a bit more professional these days, and I even considered taking it to a new blog entirely. But Goggles & Lace is home and a place where I’ve grown so much in so little time, thanks in large part to the fantastic friends that this blog has brought to me.
For now, the forefront project for G&L is Writing Life, set to post every Friday. I may pepper the schedule with randomness now and again. I know you’d all miss my crazy if I was serious all the time. <3
You can also check out my “author” blog at An American Author in Dreamland. I’m going to try to keep up both blogs without too much delay in posting. Note that AAID is going to be quite a bit more personal than G&L. =]
Friday - Writing Life. We writers need to stick together. It’s in the Writing Life series that I’ll address issues, fixes, and overall advice for my fellow writers (and also as reminders to myself. I’m not perfect. =P) If you have any questions or issues that need addressing, visit my contact page, and send your inquiry on over.
