Call for Prompts: Steampunk!
Leaf
aldersprig
The prompts theme for January is (drumroll please):

Steampunk!!

(Based on the results of this poll and this call for ideas).

Re-imagine steampunk. Not just gears and brass, corsets and goggles, what can I do with steampunk? Where can the steam and the sci-fi go that it hasn't gone before?

I'm looking for writing prompts for short stories, and, if you want to challenge me more, a specific word count greater than 99 but less than 3500. Can't promise all will be written but what I can say is that, if I write a short story off your prompt, you will get a copy of it even if it is not posted for general consumption.

I'll post one or two free stories off each call for prompts and offer the rest for sponsorship until or unless they're submitted for publication

For stories written from previous prompts, see the summary post

Ok, the humerous part os me is yelling : "We've lost our goggles! Oh no, whatever shall we do without them?"

Ahem. Had to get that off my chest.

Steampunk tends to be about adventure and exploration, or occasionally crime solving. How about a story about ordinary people and how all this technological change affects their lives?

Also, I like blimps.
