Hello… is this thing on…?
Too clichéd? How about…
It lives! Ahahahahaaa!
That’s kind of worse, isn’t it? OK, so, it’s 2012 and since I never have any time to do the things I already do I thought I would try resurrecting this blog too. That makes sense, right?
The thing is, as well as writing, this is my other passion. Science fiction. Reading, watching, playing. And I want to give something back, more than just fiction, something wholly involving and substantial, something with community. I want Space-Time Industries to be synonymous with developing science fiction, with the evolution and growth of the genre. Pretty high goals, and a way off. I need to re-establish this place as a solid foundation from where I can encourage creation. I want to foster writing and filming and programming the science fiction that other people can write, watch, play.
I have a confession though. I don’t know how to do this. Not entirely. But a good place has to be just talking about the genre, promoting the genre, discussing what already exists, and what might one day exist.
Of course, I should be getting out there, communicating with people who already do this, participating in the existing community. But, here’s confession number two, I’m a bit rubbish at that. So… let’s take this in baby steps. Let’s just see if I can maintain this blog and develop some kind of momentum here first, and take it from there.
If you’re still reading… thanks, and welcome on board. My intention in the next few weeks is to write posts on the books, films and games I’m anticipating most in 2012, as I did for 2011. I should talk about that post from this time last year too, looking at 2011’s games and what I actually thought of them; did they live up to expectations? And, hopefully, I’ll throw in a few reviews as well.
Happy new year. =)
