I have navigated here from the year 1880, in Santa Fe territory, which is foreign to the United States and no longer part of Mexico. I ask the question, “Have we ever really stopped fighting the Civil War?” I am sensitive to issues of cultural differences and draw on my life as a woman to address the concerns of misappropriation. I suggest that we women are critical subsets of ANY marginalised population. I hope to reveal the heady mix of ethnicities that have always taken part in the fascinating lives of those in the Land of Enchantment.
So happy to have found this colony!

Hi @ChandlerJules

A very warm welcome to Litopia. Hope you really enjoy it. I'm sure you will find much to get involved with, so don't be shy. Just dive right in.

Here's a good link to point out a few of the key areas of activity in the Colony.

How-to Guide

If you need any further help getting around the site, then please send me a PM and I’ll be happy to assist if I can.
 
You...you write historical fiction based in Santa Fe. O.O

I lived in Santa Fe, well, a long time ago now, but it's good to hear from someone else from the Land of Enchantment. Welcome to the Colony!
 
Wow...love to hear from someone who is familiar with SF and New Mexico. My favorite job was managing a youth hostel in Santa Fe for a few years-best anecdote: Craig is on duty at the front desk, early on a Sunday morning and receives a call asking for assistance (random caller) “I’ve just had sex and something is wrong with my testicles.”

Turns out, the guy wanted St. Vincent's Hospital, of course, and a nurse we knew explained that he had likely suffered a torsion of his balls. Yikes! We were sympathetic but hysterical as well.

And the challenge is whittling down what history to include, and I have to focus on what directly impacts my characters, without overloading the story or reader. So many fascinating characters, war stories, etc. I'm loathe to dismiss, but I will.

I read somewhere you start out wanting to create an earth-shattering masterpiece and at the end (with a whimper) you are relieved that it's not a disaster.

Also, I left New Mexico a few years back when our economy took such a hard dip, however, that beautiful land still speaks to me.
 
Hello, and welcome @ChandlerJules Good to see you here. I'm sure you'll find lots of like-minded people on Litopia. We're a mixed bunch – which makes for lots of lively discussions. History is always fascinating. But yeah – what to keep and what to miss out...:eek:

I'm one of the Guardians on Litopia. If you have any questions, please get in touch. I look forward to seeing you around the Colony! :)
