Science Fiction, Fantasy and Historic Movies
I am also planning a few changes in the blog – most of my original fiction shall henceforth be available to read only for a limited period of time. After that I plan to take them down and polish them to compile into short story collections. While I am still not dependent on my writing for a living and would be glad to offer my stories for free on my blog, I feel blog posts come with an expiry period. People rarely read old blog posts. So I decided after having put creative effort into conceptualizing a story, it is pointless to let it languish on blog archives. So from now on, only one fiction series will be available on the blog at one point of time. The moment the next one starts the previous one will go offline.
The other thing I am going to do is to broaden the scope to bring a wider readership. The idea of this blog was to introduce people to the fascinating world of science fiction, fantasy and historic fiction. But calling it a blog on science fiction and fantasy does not serve that purpose as it puts a label on the blog right away and makes it kind of a restricted area. So I plan to broaden the scope and talk about the past, the plausible future and wild imagination in general rather than just the works of fiction associated with these realms of the mind. So going ahead one can expect to see themes of a more general interest that might provoke interest in the related fiction genres in quite a few.
In line with these changes, I shall have to redesign my blog and change the tag line as well. I shall be doing that when I get some free time later this year. I am also aware a blog needs a good header like a book needs a cover illustration. It has been pending for long and hopefully I would have one up very soon.
Coming up next week - ET - my first Science Fiction movie
