Hey, so as some of you probably know, I didn’t post a chapter Saturday. That’s because… honestly I haven’t felt like writing recently. When I think about making parts/scenes of a chapter, I kinda think of it as a movie and there are just some things that’s hard to write the way it would actually be so that could be part of it. But, also, there’s another part of the story that I’ve become more interested in and would really like to work on before I actually keep writing the actual ‘story’ and that’s to continue to grow the world around them. All the sim stories I’ve ever read never really expand beyond the sim towns very much at all… you might hear a few things about what’s happening in another sim town but basically never another country or anything like that. I want to define the 26th century in my story’s alternate universe; I want to know what’s happening in other parts of the world and what’s happened in the 500 years from now to then. I want to really make it seem real. I’ve always wanted to just make it as real as it can be. It’s just part of me to want to go beyond and while maybe I don’t have to know the state of most of the world in order to write the story, I want to. I really, honestly want to have that – a fully fleshed out universe and past – for this world. I don’t like having blanks and a five-hundred year gap in the history of the world is kinda crazy… and history has a lot to do with how people interact with the world and all. Stopping writing chapters for now is not exactly what I wanted to be doing as we approach this story’s one-year anniversary, but I can’t do both. So I hope you guys are on board with this and will still be here when I continue writing which hopefully won’t be too long. This is just an extra thing that I’ve felt like doing for a little while now and now that writing just hasn’t been flowing I think it would be a great time to work on this.
So… I just have a few questions for you guys. What countries right now do you think will still be around in 500 years? Anything you specifically want me to address in what happened in those years? Anything else?
Thank you all for always being such great readers, I wouldn’t be here without you.
