Creativity

I think it's important to be creative.

I like science fiction because it examines new frontiers.

So when I write science fiction, I want to capture the same sense of wonder I felt when watching Stargate. Spoiler alert!

Spoiler alert! Jaffa kree!

Wait, if you haven't watched Stargate yet, go and watch Stargate SG-1!

I remember seeing how the Asgardians were seen as Asgardian gods, and it was interesting Read more of this blog post »
