Serendipity and Smoked Glass

Hi, everybody! Last week I hit 50K words on my nosferatu novel. Very exciting!

Since then a scene’s come up where a fire faerie needs to create some smoked glass for the nosferatu prince. Now, I don’t know the first thing about how you’d make sunglasses in the old days, so over the past day or two I googled up information…but it always stuns me how so much of the information and inspiration I need for any given book just…floats into my life.

Today the ocean of inspiration sent me a post from Gurney Journey that mentioned Lorrain Mirrors. When I clicked on the link, I got an entire article about darkened mirrors and smoked lenses used in the past, and a simplified way to make one.

Ain’t serendipity wonderful?
