What is the purpose of science fiction? In many respects, it is a commentary on our society, who we are, and where we could be going?
I discussed some of these things in my last post, but I feel this is worth discussing further. For the record, this isn’t something that’s happened since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.
Yes, it’s that time again, the time when I start playing with dark fantasy stories. I’m doing this on a few fronts this time.
I have two ex-girlfriends. I’m on friendly terms with both of them.
After an exciting round of Dark Souls 3, I was about to shut off the game for the night. I’d drawn plenty of enjoyment out of it, including one incredible accomplishment.
I’ve been working on a new dark fantasy project. I haven’t said a lot about it, since it was going to be a simple piece. Three sections, conflict between the POV of each, dark, sad, done.
Then I realized I had ideas past what I’d initially planned to write. Juicy, mysterious setting stuff. I wanted to write more.
I didn’t have all the answers, but I knew that wasn’t a problem. Dark Souls and Bloodborne don’t give you the answers, you have to go digging for them.
With the nature of digital prose, I knew I could release installments and slowly build something larger.
