I had an idea for a cool new novel, or series of short stories today. Even though I try NOT to think of new plots, sometimes I can’t help it. I’ve got a long backlog of stories to tell as it is, but I think that trying to write a serialized short story will help me stay fresh as I work on “I AM”. It’s sometimes useful to have more than one thing going—it shifts your mind to new characters, worlds, and ideas, so when you come back to the other work you see things you may not have thought about.
I think I’ll call this story: “Escape from Chara Prime”. It’ll be a pure science fiction story—what I might call classic SciFi. I wound up documenting a whole set of new technologies for it today, as well as an idea about how that society is organized.
