For Exodus (updates)

Now Playing: Halo: Reach OST - Beta Suite

I got such a good response for the Isadora/Dr. Monroe piece, that I am legitimately sure my next NaNo project could be my best written novel to date.


If I finish it.

And get the science right.

And the characters--minor and secondary.

And write a good ending.

And generally don't let the plot slip through my fingers like what happened with Millennium Girl >_>

@_@ I am so doomed.

Planning is well underway, as evidence by the rise in sticky notes. Not that they've stopped with the daily escape attempts.

Plus here's some inspiration art!

Fisheye Placebo: Ch1 by yuumei.

I can't find a title for this one, but the GeekTyrant article credits CGHUB artist fightPUNCH - though their link is broken. Here's the source link I have.

A hundred years by cat-meff.

Black Valkyrie by streetX222.

I'm excited. I've never had so much come together for one novel: old characters I've been thinking about for a few years + environment I've been thinking about for years + new characters that have been written into well received short stories + visual art inspiration + regular inspiration (books, movies, video games. music) + walls and notebooks full of ongoing research, dialogue, and ideas = HOPEFULLY SOMETHING GOOD DX.

We'll see how much I fall into despair come NaNo. Hopefully little posts like these remind me of the bliss that came once upon a time (in planning).

    ... You are a good person for putting the credits @_@ *pats*

    1. Gotta give credit where credit is due. (Also, I dun wanna anger artists Dx)


"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
