What I'm working on these days, March 2021 edition.
Habits beat goals, and one of the habits I'm trying to keep is a monthly here's-how-we're-doing.
This is Rumor Control; here are the facts.
How everything from 'Dune' and 'Tron: Legacy' to 'Cowboy Bebop' fed into 'Flight Of The Vajra'.
In the previous installments of this series, I talked about the many-years-long path Flight Of The Vajra took to congeal from several different ideas I had for it. Here, I'm going to talk about some of the other properties and influences that fed into it and shaped it.
How 'Flight Of The Vajra' took shape from a few ideas about what a far-future setting would look like, including materials sciences and belief systems.
Back in Part One of this series I described how the germ of the idea for Flight Of The Vajra came from a while slew of disparate project ideas that never came to fruition. The core of the idea, though, came from a completely different direction.
How my novel 'Flight Of The Vajra' began as multiple unreconciled attempts to write a "big and bold" space opera.
Somewhere along the line, I think I made a pledge to myself to try writing at least one story in every genre I can get my hands on, until either I run out of genres or I myself run out, period. Among the bases I've already rounded include space opera, and that in what I hope is a big country way. But boy, did it take a long time to get there.
(Note: Some of this has been rewritten or taken from a previous post I did on this subject, so there is some duplication of material.)
The soundtrack for my novel 'Wecome To The Fold'.
With each book I write, there's almost always a soundtrack of some kind to go with it -- music to match the mood and tempo of each scene. That said, I find I almost never listen to the music in question when writing or editing the scene in question, as I find that too distracting; there's other music I have specifically for the writing process.
Odds are you can find most, if not all, of these by way of your friendly neighborhood music streaming service.

A discussion of the themes in my novel 'Welcome To The Fold', and how they are embodied there.
Last time I posted in this series, I talked about the characters, major and supporting. This time around, I'll run down some of the major themes in the story as I saw them.
