Hello again! It's been a while, hasn't it? I'm sorry.|
Life proceeds pretty much as normal. I'm still writing a story I've mentioned here before. The one called Homecoming. I think I said in my last entry that it was almost finished... however long it has been since then hasn't seen the end yet. I do know what's happening. The hero and his odd companions are heading into an unknown room to face the villian. He is, of course, mistaken in one of his core beliefs about the villian. And the way his friends died. And the reasons he got his Gift in the first place.
One of the pages I have saved on my laptop (I've started calling it 'my laptop' instead of 'my laptoppy thing' since last we spoke... so that's different) is titled 25 Ways to Fuck With Your Characters... sometimes I do kind of feel sorry for my imaginary friends... :P Unfortunately for them, their happiness and contentedness does not add anything interesting to their stories. I can't remember who said it but no-one grows without need. Their struggle is the the story, their growth the reader's reward. Tell the tale of their journey from who they were without trouble to who are once the trouble is done.
I have started a bunch of other stories of course. One is highly complicated set in a distant future where humanity lives in orbit around the dead planet that they've forgotten birthed them. In a large number of highly specialised and enormous space stations, humanity continues in ignorance of events that could destroy them all. I haven't written much of it yet but I'm liking it as a space opera type saga... which I doubt I'll ever finish.
Women, you say. What about the women in your life? Ah, there my friends I have both interesting and annoying news. I have met someone but she is quite young. Too young maybe which is the annoying part because the interesting part is that I am highly attracted to her which is not something that I experience all that often. I can find women attractive but being attracted to them is a different thing for me.
Oh well, time will tell.
Love you all. Bye until next time... whenever that might be. :)
