Somebody asked me, "What kind of stories do you want to do? What do you have in your back pocket?"
My first thought was, "My ass?" And then I got thoughtful.
Well, I have many tales and stories I have always wanted to do. Some of them are half-written. Some exist as scribblings while others are entirely inside my head. A few are in full proposal mode.
I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. Usually, it is to push us humans towards awareness.
The people I've met and circumstances have pushed me into digging up all these old stories I had fun with, in my youth.
I told them my tales of giant robots on distant planets. Benevolent observers here on earth, the reason for Atlantis getting submerged, a reworking of an alternate history of the world, a place where all stories interact.
I have many more. Reverse invasion. Cloak and dagger in Malaysia. Schrodinger's Cat for the Jews - a tale that spans millions of years with a bunch of immortals.
A man who believes he is the center of the universe. A love story spanning 30 years about two people in different locations who only meet once every decade.
Give me funding. I'll write them all. And in the darkness, bind them.
