Writing

[Writing] Glaring at notecards

Have spent the better part of my day reading about writing, again. Trying out notecard scenes and questioning to come up with a rudimentary outline.

Here’s the train of thought

  • Snow in july, why is it snowing in july?
  • The snow is actually emissions from a space ship, why?

Then I’m stuck again. Too many damn options. Is the spaceship buzzing the earth for fun in a┬ájuvenile┬áprank? Is the story about the aliens not earth? Does it crash land? Does the earth military set up planetary defense systems and blow it out of the sky starting a galactic war?

 

Just want to bang my head against the table.
