In previous posts on this site I’ve talked about writing paranormal tales, my love of short fiction, and fantasy. I also write a bit of science fiction, and that’s the topic today.
We grow and mature as we write. The more we produce, the more we learn about ourselves. I love a good space opera. I read them, I go to movies with that theme… I don’t write them well. Maybe I should make this one of my personal challenges, but sometimes you just have to face facts.
My science fiction works best as what I call “ten minutes into the future.” I totally stole that from an old television series that was based upon a New Coke advertisement. Bonus points if you remember.
I write better science fiction that is more like Planet of the Apes. I really enjoy them, and feel no need to test the space opera…
