In this video I talk about a wide-range of things that are influencing and in my mind as I write this scifi novel. This novel deals with some pretty weighty subjects. This little talk is pretty interesting, all things considered. This novel deals with some epic geopolitical issues, but hopefully in such as way it’s all compelling to a reader. I still have dreams of this novel being turned into a movie at some point, but that’s just an idle fever dream at this point.

I was feeling a little nervous about a plothole in the novel I’m writing and I think I may have come up with a solution.

Maybe.

In a last ditch effort to save the novel, I’ve decided to shoehorn my personal experiences with the late Annie Shapiro into the narrative. I don’t know how successful I’m going to be in the first draft making this something that doesn’t make people groan, but we’ll see. I had to do something to make the concept accessible and throwing my relationship with Ms. Shapiro into the mix seemed the best way to do it.

I’ve also decided for kicks to loosely based the female romantic lead on a mixture of Ms. Shapiro and fashion icon Alexa Chung. It’s my story, I can do whatever the fuck I want do with it. Anyway, we’ll see how successful all of this is. I, for once, have hope.

The thing about the latest Mission: Impossible movie, which I thought was excellent by the way, was it had interesting characters who drew you into what was a rather policy wonk plot. As such, I find myself thinking about how to address some Big Ideas in this novel I’m writing, but in a manner that the average person will appreciate.

Here are some other videos about what I’m writing.
