We're working on a project right now that's more than a bit different from our usual -- a new subgenre (alt-historical fantasy) for a new publisher (Eos) -- so we thought that this would be a good time to try out something new in the writing-process line. Hence, the Mist and Snow on-line work-in-progress journal.

What's Mist and Snow? It's the working title of a fantasy novel about the American Civil War at sea. (The book may well be called something else altogether by the time it comes out, if the publisher decides that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet and sell better.) The story's roots are in the usual jumbled compost of the writerly mind; some of the bits and pieces down there this time are the stories of H. P. Lovecraft and the poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the clash between USS Monitor and CSS Virginia, and the exploits of CSS Alabama up to her defeat in a one-on-one duel with USS Kearsarge.

And a rough log? It's the draft version of a ship's log, kept in pencil as it happens. The rough log is copied later by the ship's quartermaster into the "smooth log", which constitutes the official version.
