"Great Scott!"

Today a coworker informed me that he hadn't seen an update in a while.  (Hi Bob!)  I sadly had to admit I've done ZERO writing lately. I can't manage to find the right motivation to finish my first, most developed project.  The motivation hasn't been there in a while, honestly.  However, my brain constantly thinks about other possible projects, which generally are inspired by the most random events.

This week, my 14 year old daughter decided she wanted to set aside a bit of time every night to watch the Back to the Future trilogy, which gets no argument from me.  Now, she is an avid Dr. Who fan.  I myself have never seen the show.  However, I would think she had at least some grasp on the whole theory of the space time continuum.  

Shortly after beginning the second movie, I realized that was not the case.  Of course, being truly stuck in the 80's, I can recite the movies, so that possibly has a bit to do with it.  Then she made a very random comment that kind of brought me up short.  She looked at me and stated, "well, if time travel really was possible, then it wouldn't really matter if people died."  Now that's kind of a morbid thought.  She expounded on this thought by explaining that people wouldn't have to be sad if someone died, because they could just go back in time and see them.  Or the deceased could travel forward in time to a period after their demise and visit loved ones.  So would you really miss someone after they died?  That's deep.  Very deep.  Opens a lot of possibilities for a very interesting story.  

In the meantime, as always, here's something I recently read that I highly recommend:  Afterworlds, by Scott Westerfeld.  Of course, some of you are aware that I am extremely partial when it comes to Westerfeld, but as an author who aspires to be published...someday...I found this one particularly entertaining.

  3. Here's summore illustrious, ingenious, incisive scenarios
    which'll give you a first-rate, fast-paced, unexpectedly vivid,
    utterly tangible, lethal ‘quid-pro-quo-protagonist' @ warp-speed:
    [whew]

    High, girl!
    While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our 24 blogs a gobba (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet-o, packaged, concise.

    Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    zooillogical-expiration-date,
    with an IQ much higher than K2,
    and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with an excellent bullshot detector):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, prolific iconoclasm where you’ll find
    astronomically prodigious,
    immeasurably extensive,
    monumentally tremendous,
    stupendously substantial,
    infinitely irresistible,
    (XnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX… )
    deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
