For June I had planned on writing one hour a day. That worked while the football/soccer matches where still not that interesting, I could write while watching. But NOW things are getting more exciting and I have to focus. :) Although for most of the four groups the teams in first and fourth position were quite clear after two matches, the other matches were interesting nevertheless (beside the German one last night – booooring).
So I didn’t get much writing done, but (something that hasn’t happened so much with “Ella” – maybe that was/is the problem) I have constantly asked and answered myself questions. Like “Why will Anna be on that ship? How did she achieve it?” or “Who else’s POV will I use and why?” and I have done “research” on e.g. the construction on spaceships and what material is/could be used (the Star Trek world for example uses clear aluminium for windows. It’s much more easy to use, light and robust. Some years ago I read that scientists had invented clear aluminium – with the same characteristics – for real. The piece was only about 15x15 cm or something and still too difficult to manufacture, but still, there it was).
I don’t know yet what time exactly the story takes place, but I know it’s the not too distant future, so clear aluminium for windows is a credible possibility.
But yeah, football is on every night for the next 12 days still (or not every night anymore as we approach quarter finals now) and writing has to retreat a bit.
Wish us luck! :)
