it’s been a while since my last post because I’ve been waiting for my website to be up and running, unfortunately we ran into some delays so I thought I’d better get back on the horse as it were.
As the title suggests my topic today is Star Trek. I was wondering if any of you out there is as excited as I am about the upcoming new film? Gene Roddenberry’s creation is so ingrained in popular culture that yesterday’s science fiction is now science fact and many of the things first seen on the Original Series featuring Kirk and his crew have now become items we use on a regular basis, such as the mobile phone and IPad.
In fact Star Trek became so ingrained in my psyche that when I started writing anything with a sci fi theme came out reminiscent of Roddenberry’s creation. I tried really hard to get away from it but then found myself veering more towards Star Wars or when that happened and I tried again Babylon 5 reared its metaphoric ugly head. Did anyone else have the same trouble when they began writing I wonder?
I would be interested to hear any thoughts on the subject, but for now that’s all,
See you soon and I promise this time it won’t be as long.
