So while I’ve not been writing too much Kupop stuff, I haven’t been slacking. A lot of the stuff I’ve written the last few months has been other fan-stuff, largely related to the Destiny video game setting, because my brain loves to play with the lore there.
But late in November I saw a post on r/WorldBuilding for a daily challenge, with one- or two-word prompts per day. And my brain latched onto it, along with an inspiration of “space mythology” that I’d recently seen.
While I technically missed one day, I made up for it the following day and wrote two little entries for it. And rather than just write dry statistical stuff, I’m using each prompt as an excuse to write a scene as from a larger narrative. Some are scenes on a more local level (focusing primarily on the crew of one ship and some refugees on board it), while others are presented like tales from the setting about legends and whatnot.
I’ve been posting these all to my writing blog. Here’s a link to the hub post for the whole thing.
The whole thing is not going to give the whole narrative, and I fully intend to go back after the month is over and fine-tune and edit and rewrite and expand, but I’m appreciating the excuse to get my ass into writing/creativity mode every day.
