Part 7 Surprises in writing a science fiction thriller

I SHALL BE HEARD
I SHALL BE HEARD

A surprise developed earlier this week that couldn’t be held back anymore.

The chest burster … uh … burst out!

My research into the details of a plot line has now expanded into an entirely new novel idea, PERSIA AWAKENING, a military fiction thriller.

I say expanded because several military stuffs are part of the science fiction thriller, but that plot line and those plot devices have developed a life of their own.

Now several of my supporting characters have become main characters in the new series.

The toughest part is keeping the timing right between the two series.

Guess I’ll just have to work it out. 😉

Novel research. Easy right?

Interviews with people over a cup of coffee, maybe a light lunch.

Phone calls, emails and texts back and forth.

Poring over past videos, photos, notes and online forum posts from my personal experiences.

Then the typical bit of light reading (below).

All for my science fiction thriller. I’ve also got plenty of stuff for the civil forfeiture plot device.

Plus more still. Like more mechanical engineering textbooks, other novel related materials, notes …

I love it 😀
