I’m currently suffering for writers block, and I’m pretty sure the reason is stress from trip planning/packing. I’m sure the housing situation isn’t helping. Plus I’m trying to do a bunch of research on some pretty deep subjects for the system in which a kind of “magic” is possible. I’m trying to base the “magic” system on old world religions, such as Esoteric Christianity, Kabbalah, Zoroastrianism, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and Thelema. There is just so much information that my brain is turning to mush.
Perhaps I need a writer’s palate cleanser of some sort.
I’m watching a show called The Universe on Netflix and it always gets my creative juices flowing. All of the information on black holes and white holes and worm holes and supernovae and these things makes me want to write a science fiction story in the style of the movie Primer.
Something that can seem realistic, like say a researcher is studying micro-magnetic fields and how they affect quarks or strings, something at the quantum level.
Eventually they find that they’re actually creating micro worm holes and via the test equipment they’re getting a duplicate SSID for their wireless network. When connected to this “new” SSID they find that it’s X amount of time in the future. Dependent on the spin or wavelength or amount of power of the magnetic fields they’re able to connect to different future times. Never being able to connect any further back than the first time the device is powered on. Something like this could go anywhere, story-wise.
Having these thoughts don’t really help when creating my horror series, but it’s nice to think about. Could always be the next project 😛
