A Narrative Story

For some time I’ve been having – what could be or is a narrative type story going through my mind recently. It’s a type a of story that doesn’t have a person to person interaction.

This is the south end of Fallen Leaf Lake at twilight.
This is the south end of Fallen Leaf Lake at twilight.

It is a story that takes place in point of time in about 50 to 60 years from now and it would be one of those events that would or could change the course of history – in the case future history of the planet. It would happen to take place when the planet is visibly dying and there isn’t much time left to have generational ships leave the planet to seed other habitual planets in nearby systems.

What has been circulation around my mind is a broad event where there are at least 4 to 6 older space fairing species that would visit the planet to look for someone who’s from a much older time but not old enough to be considered a part of the “first ones” – a term coined in Babylon 5.

There would also be some elements from other TV shows that have been off the air for some time. When I think of setting for this one event I imagine elements from various shows that had been on the air in the last 15 years.

The part of the problem is that I’m having trouble flushing out the details of this story that I have – I see the big overall picture – it’s just the interaction between people and the sequence of events that lead up to this point and the sequence after this one point.

If and when I would sit down to write something about this narrative that I have been thinking about – I probably would get a draft of all the little details and filled into the story.

I’m not in a conducive environment to write a good thought out story of this nature.

The comments should be open for those who want to know more….

Later, Peter
