Been jotting down notes on my sci-fi story. I've come up with a totally interesting universe, but no story to play out in it! Who wants to read that? I need a new idea to get people travelling... and that's a challenge. People travelling through a universe is not exactly a new idea.
Had an idea for a song about the fight that happens in the music shops. Guitarists are accustomed to just turning up their amp. Pianists are accustomed to banging away. They never get along! Those amps just can't compete with a nice big lump of spruce. And you'd never know, because a piano just sounds so nice.
Had a good read. I'm back into The Number of the Beast because I'm committed to figuring out just what happens in the end!
Number of the Beast is a unique "people travel through the universe" story, with lots of social commentary, mostly about marriage. I'm glad Heinlein wasn't my husband!
Also on my bookshelf: The Mote in God's Eye, UAC 2006 Guide, and a lot of self-psychology or self-empowering (is that a word?) books. I love Barbara DeAngelis and Leil Lowndes - they're romantics.
Piano's getting to the stalled stage. I need new approaches to my practice for each of my pieces.
