Current Project Update
Finished the 1st alien Culture, got the foundations down, enough to write their part of the novel, and flesh out the finer details as I write.
They’re an advanced race, valuing knowledge. Collecting and consolidating genetic and intellectual data from planets with life via inter-dimensional rift pathways.
But they’re not all virtuous.
Their God(s) seem to be a race of other aliens, in the distant universe with a strength of mind that reaches across dimensions but with no desire to interfere.
Starting on a 3rd alien Culture, a race who finds the 1st aliens abhorrent in their genetic manipulation, a race who is struggling to survive, a race who want the 1st’s perfect world.
Yet this race too houses individuals at odds with their values.
Both these races have individuals on Earth, amongst humans, in the near future. Our planet a mid-point between their home planets.
Starting to flesh out the 3rd alien culture as soon as I pick me up some more stationery.
Lovely, lovely stationery.
[As per Holly’s writing courses, I use paper and pen. Binders with lined paper, plastic pockets, dividers and printed worksheets. And an awesome pen. Or five. I’m partial to the Bic 4-colour pen. Super tactile and durable, and great to fiddle with between thoughts.]
Using Holly Lisle’s Create a Language and Create a Culture Clinics in sequence for both cultures.
Learning how to control the muse has been miraculous.
Right side of the brain, come at me.
Thanks for the ingenuity Holly! She’s been writing for 30 years and is sharing all, over at Holly’s Writing Classes.
Looking forward to connecting with everyone in the new year, in the meantime, I’ll be exploring my alien worlds some more.
Explore, create, repeat, then thrive.
