My sister and I were talking about our wonderful kids today. I looked at my 2 yr old, and for a moment, it seemed as if his face shifted and I saw what he'd look like twenty years from now. Very strange.
I watched Jet Li in The One the other night. Great movie. I find the concept of parallel universes intriguing. Dean Koontz wrote a book that dealt with that a little bit. And the concept of wormholes is too cool. Randy Ingermanson has a very interesting story about that.
Writing a book involves more than stringing words together. It means creating a coherent plot, readable sentences. A good book will have good sentences, good ideas. But a Great Book? The things that make it so include Great Writing, Great Plot. Fresh ideas.
Like wormholes and stuff.
Okay, I know sci-fi probably uses that. But in theory they could be real. Therefore, it takes the idea out of sci-fi, in my opinion.
