So, these days I write all over the place. It depends on my mood and where I can concentrate the best on any given day. Today I am writing on my laptop from my big poofy recliner in the living room, yesterday I wrote on my laptop on my bed where I was comfortable, on Monday I wrote in my office at my desktop computer, and I have been known to write on a tiny netbook in the car several towns away.
Sometimes it is just so hard to concentrate. Today and yesterday I've had such a hard time keeping 'in' my current novel. My mind wanders ahead to the sci fi book I want so desperately to write -- the one I've been wanting to write for years. I'm finally just going to do it regardless of the concept that science fiction does not sell. I need to do it because it is a book that is just burning a hole in my brain...it must get written. I love science fiction and the science fiction books I wrote for children have not been very good sellers...and the main tip from the industry seems to be that science fiction just does not sell and the ones that have were exceptions ...but all I can think about is the fact that Gene Roddenberry (sp? I can't believe I don't know for sure how to spell his name!!!) and Ray Bradbury, and Isaac Asimov didn't let them be sidelined because of the fact that science fiction is a hard sell.
Seriously, my mind wanders to the fictional robotic world I've created and the characters that live in them. Knowing that Science Fiction is a hard sell, especially science fiction for women -- which is what my book will be -- is not going to stop me from writing it. I don't care if it even sells at all, I just MUST write it! Out of curiosity though, I do wonder how many other woman love science fiction like I do? Surely I cannot be alone in this.
