>So much going on

>A trip to the ER, a positive pregnancy test, and a vacation later…

I’m here. đŸ™‚

Last night I had a dream. I dreamed of a military group, underground, complete with barracks. A resistance, but with a full army at the ready.

I’m not sure what they’re fighting, or why, or what they’re going to do. I know there is a white woman and a black man, and she is rewarded with a command and him as second in command so they can have private time together thanks to an extreme act of heroism/sacrifice. (Holy runon sentence, batman!)

I realized that this is my childhood tale of the Wildcats, a silly little story of an orphan who discovers a massive underground military society in the woods behind her orphanage. The man she eventually fell in love with was named Leapard (and I deliberately misspelled it, thinking it was cool.)

It was a silly story, but there’s a grain of potential there. I think that with some polished steel, airships, space capability and advanced computers, I could make a decent sci-fi out of it. I’m going to have to work hard to keep it from becoming romnace-ish. The relationship isn’t the point, it’s simply just a part of the story. I also vow to have more than two characters. With a facility as large as the one I dreamed of last night, there HAS to be more.

  1. >Nothing wrong with the subgenre of sf romance. Lots of well-known authors make their living off it (Lois McMaster Bujold, Jacqueline Carey) so just write the story that tickles your fancy.

  2. >A trip to the ER, a positive pregnancy test, and a vacation later…Holy crap, that’s a lot going on! (Makes me feel like I’ve been kinda whiny about the turmoil in my own life. *g)Mega congrats on the baby, and like Mike says–nothin’ wrong with romance! =)
