Good Sci-Fi

Good morning.

I am presently writing my first science fiction trilogy. Although from far-off I looked at it is one of those scary moments.  Up close it still seems a little unnerving yet it is one of the most interesting of things that I have done.

I actually do more research and study on this than my usual literature writing. To write good science fiction, you have to know what’s really going on, what technologies are really out there, and what they are capable of doing. Outstanding fiction has more truth in it you may imagine.

I have the freedom to create worlds and dialogues, people and events. And, with any significant freedom given comes great responsibility and the need to do it right. If I’m going to do it right, I need to actually know what I’m talking about. That’s okay, I have a professional background, in space.

If you would be interested in seeing what I write and how I imagine our past, present, and future on this world, please comment back to this blog. And please let me know how I can reach you and send you some of the chapters that I’m working on (an email would do). I have always been interested in sharing with friends. If you’re reading this, I’m willing to bet you’re a friend.

Thanks,

 

The Sanctity of Each Individual.

Once again, this weekend we have seen the horrible and tragic evidence of what happens when people cannot control themselves or get along. In this world, it seems we only have ourselves and each other. And for us to use survives and thrives as a species we must do more than battle with each other over words and ideals.

I’m not saying that ideals and words serve no account. I am saying that until we learn to talk in common and peaceful discourse, we are our own worse and most violent threat to our existence.

We are smart people, living our beliefs and dedicated to our causes. And yet, if we don’t learn to live with each other in civility, men with rockets and bombs that can reach the West Coast will do little compared to the destruction that we will do to ourselves.

We must all work towards the common good knowing the importance and the sanctity of each individual.
