A New Blog I’m Thinking About


I have often thought about writing fictional stories (first person account…only way I know how). I guess it’s the wannabe writer in me to desire this. I have often been encouraged to write and get published. I don’t know about that. But, fiction gives me more freedom to be creative and put my thoughts into a story. I am thinking about starting this new blog (possibly later this year or early next year) that is related to a series of dreams (or nightmares) I had early this year. I think it was all related to the Will Smith movie, “I Am Legend.” I thought it was a very poor movie. But, I had about five dreams that involved me that were a result of that movie, I believe. You can read about those dreams HERE.

The blog is going to be in the form of a diary. Entries will be made in month, date and time format. I’m not sure about putting a year on it or not. It will be me writing about waking up one morning…and there are no birds singing, no sounds of automobiles…and ominously, no sounds of people. I will make entries about waking up, going into town…and finding no one. And then just take off from that point. I’ve always been fascinated by the Twilight Zone episode (Where Is Everybody?) where a man wakes up and finds no one in town. He eventually finds out he’s part of an air force experiment for being alone in space. I will just play it by ear. I’m not sure how this will end or when it will end. I suppose I will end it when I feel I’ve gone as far as I can with it. I’m just in the early stages of formulating this entire endeavor. I’m not sure if I will host the blog on Blogger or not. We’ll see about that. Right now, my tentative title of the Blog will be “Diary: Alone on Earth.” Like I say, that is the tentative title right now. I’ll have to think on that a bit more.

I’ll give updates on this as I think more about it. It’s just time to do this.

This sounds like an interesting concept. I'd be interested to see how that goes for you.

loy, thanks for the comment. This is my first attempt at fiction. It's something I always wanted to do. And waking up and finding yourself alone on earth...is mind boggling. Thanks again.

Sounds like a great idea. I'll read it when you get going. Writing fiction is extremely fun, and very challenging. Enjoy the process. I made my first public attempt a little while ago, and had a blast with it. Now I'm trying to work up something that I can continue.

David go for it!! I can only encourage you to the utmost. And that's from the wannabee writer in me. Plug away get it going and don't give up.
LoCTY!!!

Eric, I'm not sure why the thought of being the last living human being has always haunted me. But, it has. It might be that Twilight Zone episode I saw as a small child that got me to thinking about this quite often. Thanks for the comment.

locty, thanks for the hyped encouragement! :) I plan on giving this endeavor my best shot. That is why I'm still in the planning stage. I'm not sure yet where to host. But, once I do, I will get started. Thanks for the comment.
