For some time I’ve been having – what could be or is a narrative type story going through my mind recently. It’s a type a of story that doesn’t have a person to person interaction.
It is a story that takes place in point of time in about 50 to 60 years from now and it would be one of those events that would or could change the course of history – in the case future history of the planet. It would happen to take place when the planet is visibly dying and there isn’t much time left to have generational ships leave the planet to seed other habitual planets in nearby systems.
What has been circulation around my mind is a broad event where there are at least 4 to 6 older space fairing species that would visit the planet to look for someone who’s from a much older time but not old enough to be considered a part of the “first ones” – a term coined in Babylon 5.
There would also be some elements from other TV shows that have been off the air for some time. When I think of setting for this one event I imagine elements from various shows that had been on the air in the last 15 years.
The part of the problem is that I’m having trouble flushing out the details of this story that I have – I see the big overall picture – it’s just the interaction between people and the sequence of events that lead up to this point and the sequence after this one point.
If and when I would sit down to write something about this narrative that I have been thinking about – I probably would get a draft of all the little details and filled into the story.
I’m not in a conducive environment to write a good thought out story of this nature.
The comments should be open for those who want to know more….
One thing that I have noticed that have changed is the type of books that I have read for the last 6 to 8 years. I used to read only Science Fiction and Computer books, a few fiction and non-fiction books. I am looking at more authors from fiction and non-fiction books. I’m getting burnt out and tired of reading Sci Fiction and Computer books in general. Basically similar content when I’m computer books and I could say the same thing about Sci Fiction books.
For all the reading I want to do now, I just don’t have access to the books that I already have in storage, in Alaska. Even though I go to the library to check out books that I want to read, it’s still not the same of going into another room that is full of books and choosing a book that I already own.
I love to read. A lot, when I can or when I’m not in school and even though I read for classes, it is nice to read books that takes your mind of off things for a short bit of time before getting back to reading for school or work.
Even though I’ve started to read books again, it had been a hit and miss habit that comes and goes like the wind. Sometimes reading could be the only thing that would be the only thing that would make me sleepy enough to fall asleep at night. That’s one thing I like about reading these days.
Now, I just to figure out to spread out reading for pleasure, school, and daily life evenly to make things work seemly together. I, also, need to make time to take photographs for class, and for building up a portfolio. I need to find some way to publish some photographs so I can get noticed. Taking and talking about photography is for another post for another time.
