Hello Groovy People,
It has been a while since I made my last entry. I have been busy of sorts with taking tests, teaching origami, and resting.
I have great news, I have passed two of my tests and I have two more to go!
That is not why I write this entry today.
I have been going back and forth for over a decade with my space book. It was something that was inspired by two very different things:
- Joss Wedon’s Serenity
- Foo Fighters album The Colour and Shape
I know what you’re thinking, how can a Foo Fighters album influence a story? Well, when I listen to music I often imagine people, places, and situations. It can be a love story or an action fight scene that plays out in my head.
The album I mentioned was bought while I was in high school over 15 years ago. I only bought it for one song, Everlong. However, during a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure, I had the entire album play as I sulked; I was 19 at that time and hated going to an amusement park.
Luckily for me, hearing that album play gave me an idea of a space tale that centered around two cheeky girls, and a hell of a lot of intergalactic adventures.
Of course, years went by and I scraped most of what I had. I had finished the entire book, but it was so unfocused that the abrupt end was confusing even to myself.
I decided to reboot it of sorts like I did with Journey’s End. I must say that it is much better with a more fleshed out story. I am nowhere near finished, but I’ll keep you updated!
