Then it’s like I can’t stop hearing them

Today, I watched the Star Trek: Voyager episode Nemesis. I have to say it’s one of the best of the series so far. It has a twist that I should have seen coming, but I didn’t, and it flipped the episode on its head. It’s the epitome of Star Trek in its message. Very well done.

I think I may have come to the end of Don’t Bleed blurbs, like my next step would really be to just put the blurbs in chronological order, outline the story where it stands right now, and then write it. If only I weren’t trying to get through editing my novel and making a decision on its general length / whether it’s bloated.

So where does that leave me with my little creative foray of the day? I’m not sure. Maybe with the Unheired Prince story of here and here, for the same blurb treatment.

“Get up.”

When I don’t react, he says it again. “Get up.” Then, “Don’t kneel before me.”

I stand, but keep my head bowed and gaze lowered. Is it better to look death in the face? I don’t know.

“I won’t do it.”

It’s like I don’t understand the words at first, and then it’s like I can’t stop hearing them.
