Big surprise, right? With how much I keep up this blog, its not really surprising that writing is slow-going at best. The thing is, I know this short story I'm working on will be great if I can just get it all out! It feels like a good, unique story. Unique stories are hard to come by. Most ideas are recycled in some way or another. Think about how many times/ways Romeo and Juliette has been done!
One thing I notice when I write Sci-Fi is that I feel ever so slightly out of my element. It feels more like faking it (see the previous post for quote on "faking it"). I also worry that I'll be writing about something that I only have minimal knowledge of. Certain scientific aspects of a story need to be real. If you base a whole Sci-Fi story on a theory, you want the theory to be believable. The more believable and based in fact, the better the story has the ability to be.
Well, hopefully I will finish this story THIS week so that next week I can return to my baby and see if I can make it grow some. Okay, not MAKE it...help it along. 8)
