More Future Tech

Time for more future tech! I know everyone on this blog has touched on some of these as normal, everyday parts of the sci-fi worlds they’ve created, but the fact that someone’s predicting they could happen in the 2030s is pretty cool. Here’s the full article, but a couple of the options leapt out at […]

The Purge

The Purge takes place in the near future where the government allows 12 hours of any kind of criminal activity with no repercussions. During the movie, we follow Purge night of the wealthy Sandin family, who normally waits out the Purge in their fortified, locked down, enormous home. I emphasize enormous because the number of […]

I’d better have seen Star Trek by now!

In case it wasn’t clear, I scheduled this post ahead of time, because I’m on a week-long cruise right now with my in-laws.  I’m also on a super crazy deadline, which means I need to spend at least half the cruise writing. Then again, most writers I know have a hard time turning it off […]

Future Tech & Plot Bunnies

This is going to be super quick – I forgot I was going to be in a hotel room this morning, prior to going to an NHL hockey game (my first live playoff game). Last week on Facebook, I came across these links (and I can’t for the life of me remember who posted them […]

Oblivion

After finally being able to breathe (somewhat), we went to see Oblivion.  I shall try not to give away any spoilers. It was rather decent (and miles better than Prometheus, so that’s something). The beginning moved rather slowly and felt like a big, long ponderous prologue, but the odd pacing was balanced by some vistas […]

When Science meets Cthulhu

I think I promised you another nonsense blog, right? I’m still on a crazy deadline, although I did manage to make the move across the country (cat as carry-on & all) with only minor mishaps. Thanks to my lovely husband, who found this link for my blog, ensuring I could devote more time to my […]

T Minus 10 Days…

I’m not even sure I’m using that title anywhere near correctly, but since I’ve got 6 days left in the office at my day job, 10 days left before my cross-country move, AND 19 days before I’ve got a (non-sci-fi) manuscript due, the brain isn’t quite engaged on non-move, non-writing subjects. Stress… I haz it. […]

Hodge Podge

The evil, never-ending manuscript is finally done! Needs some editing still, but DONE nonetheless. I was aiming for 40K and ended up with 66K. But that wasn’t the only issue. During the making of this most recent sci-fi: I had several months of back pain such that I was physically incapable of writing. My father […]

Space Age Clothing

It’s blog day again! I’m in trouble! Between trying to finish my manuscript (supposed to be 40K, is now 57K and NOT DONE YET) and dealing with… ugh, so many problems related to the sale of our house, I’m slowly losing my mind. Just when I was starting to panic, though, I saw this link […]

Continuum and Time Travel

Anyone watching this? It’s a new SyFy series where incarcerated terrorists and a cop from the year 2077 mistakenly travel back to 2012 when the terrorists stage an escape just prior to their execution. And in 2012, the tech the law enforcement uses is only in it’s infancy, because the guy who invented it is […]
