Herbert created a science fiction world that is as archaic and ancient as it is futuristic. (Much of it is subtly influenced by Sunni Islam, incidentally.) I was especially inspired by the idea of the unnaturally and, in a sense, mystically glowing blue eyes of the desert people (Fremen) and the idea that some words have a sound that is equal to a form. I would explore this concept, along with the landscape and the ways of this strange people.(less)

I have a main project (such as a book that I'm writing) but I always have other works that I've started or that are in the ideas process. Often, if I'm going to work on something major that day, I will first tackle a work that's still in the ideas stage, either adding some new thoughts or editing a few things out.

This is something I do when I can't work on a major project, wither because I have "writer's block" (which is rarely the case) or because I have to do some research for it for a while. I switch to something that is less developed. When you switch to something more about ideas you get inspired. It helps you to think and to see possibilities. That's essential.(less)

“I like masculine aesthetics. But I also write, make art, have written poetry, and like feminine aesthetics as well. I am probably seen as too masculine by some and as too feminine by others, depending on how stereotypical they are.”
Angel Millar

“I like masculine aesthetics. But I also write, make art, have written poetry, and like feminine aesthetics as well. I am probably seen as too masculine by some and as too feminine by others, depending on how stereotypical they are. But I regard myself as a man in the classical mold — someone who develops the intellect, the physical body, and the spirit; creativity, courage, and compassion . . .”

Angel Millar "Initiation unveils the workings of the cosmos outside of the initiate and points to his place within it and to the path he might take through it, toward the Divine. He is not a cog but a star, a universe - a microcosm that reflects the whole of existence and its essence." -- The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician.
