Writing

Jeff has wanted to write science fiction for many years. I guess because it was so hot in Portland a couple weeks ago and because we were feeling totally unmotivated to do real work, we got started. We're still at it.

Our story is based in the alpha centauri system on a spaceship. We've found submarines to be a good comparison for the spaceship setting in our story. It's been fun to research them.

I think I've been a little embarrassed to admit this project because I don't know if we'll come up with a story that is any good, but we have been enjoying working on this project together.

On the off chance we actually come up with a publishable book, we'll let you know. I suppose stranger things have happened.

  1. I am a sci fi lover. Unfortunately, we are a house divided. Me, Star Trek....him, Star Wars.

    1. We both like them both. Have you seen Galaxy Quest? It's another favorite.

  2. Enjoying what you are making is more important than the finished product. Really it is.

  4. You could sell it as a kindle book. A lot of beginning authors seem to do that. No publisher needed.

    I love Galaxy Quest. Never give up, never surrender.

    1. If we feel it's good enough (meaning we won't be embarrassed if other people read it), we will.
