So, I’ve decided to give it a go. There’s this story that’s been kicking around in my head for some time now and it’s obviously the culmination of waaaaay to much Sci-Fi consumption. However, recently, the story line, characters, scenes, etc, all started to become very vivid and detailed. Little droplets of plot lines started joining together to form larger drops, larger drops further joining other larger drops until a small ‘puddle’ of plot exists in my head.
Deciding not to let this one pass me by, I dusted off the notepad that contained my previous notes on this story. After some very aggressive culling, i updated what little remained of my previous notes with the new vortex of ideas from my head. Much to my surprise, the action of updating my notes only increased the cohesion of ideas that were already rapidly forming. I wonder if this is what the point of all those ‘Note Taking’ exercises were in High School….
Well, I am hoping I can take the inertia I’ve developed and run with it, guiding it and adding to it as I go along. What has me intrigued is where it is going to take me!
