Not a whole lot to talk about this #WriteTuesday – I got sick AGAIN last week (I started feeling off earlier in the week, but after work on Thursday night it turned into a full-blown cold, which knocked me out of commission for the weekend).
But I did start thinking through an idea I had for another short story (the one I mentioned in my last post for a new market). My plan was to use an alien species I came up with many years ago for it, so I thought that wouldn’t be to tough to plan out and start writing. Unfortunately, the more I thought about that alien, the less sense it physically made to me; so while I wasn’t planning on it, I kind of got stuck in worldbuilding for this story idea too. While aquatic, these aliens don’t live on Imezza, so I haven’t really thought about them in a long time (or properly thought through their biology). I’d really like them to make sense to me before I actually write any stories with them. So I spent some time over the weekend doing some research on how aquatic animals evolved; I *think* I found a way for these aliens to make sense to me.
Of course, once that’s done, I’ll need to figure out how they got themselves to space since they are aquatic! I also need to get back to the Make Your Way story. I still need to plan out the ending(s) then write that up. So everything is currently stuck in planning. Well, wish me luck on all of this – hopefully I’ll be actually writing something soon!
