My writing.

Good morning,

If you read my posts on this section, you'll see I've been writing on various story lines, most of which have nothing to do with each other. In other words, my writing is disjointed. But, for now, I like doing that, because, just as a pianist may enjoy pressing on the piano keys, so too do I enjoy typing on the keyboard. I've read the biography of Mozart, and I found out that, when he died, he was working on several compositions, and others have told me that they work on several projects at the same time, so I may be doing what others are doing.

With that in mind, I would like to post these bits and pieces, and, with your kind indulgence, have you encourage me - everyone needs feedback, and everyone needs encouragement.

Thanks for letting me write this out.
 
I'm a great believer in running several projects in parallel, as long as they're not competing for (exactly) the same resources. In principal, my logic is that when inspiration dries up for one, I have another to into which I can pour my energies; in practice, I regularly find that it's because I devote time to the "other" it un(b)locks the inspiration for the first. And on several occasions, I've found that two or three different creative strands suddenly come together to make a far more sensible and/or interesting whole.

Of course getting some of them - any of them - finished is a whole other challenge! :mope:

Congrats - i also believe in going where your creative energy takes you.
If that's mulitple projects, then go with it!

So are you gonna write a novel? Something that shows the interstellar war now that budget is no longer a constraint?
 
I have started writing the History of the First Interstellar War, but that has stalled ...... until later.

I have also started writing a trilogy of short stories about the story of Superman - the first deals with his escape from Krypton, leading to his adulthood in Metropolis and his confrontation with Lex Luthor; the second deals with his defending Earth against General Zod; and the last deals with his confrontation against Brainiac, when he enlists the help of Lex Luthor to defeat the Android.

This cannot be published yet, of course, but it will be the basis for my pitching to Warner Brothers - if nothing, it's a fun journey.

I have others, but they will be the subject of future posts. :)

Agreed 100!
