Check out the latest picture from the Mars Curiosity Rover of pebbles on Mars. Here we see a comparison of pebbles on Mars and Earth. This sure looks like a sign that there was an ancient stream on Mars. However, I don’t think this is really a new discovery. Scientists have long suspected this, but this picture helps to confirm it.
First of all, Vallar and TransShifter are temporarily available at Smashwords and Nook. The links are all under the Vallar tab above. Most likely this will be a limited time for Vallar.
Last week, I was on the verge of quitting writing at least temporarily (for a number of reasons and frustrations that are too long explain) and I came up with this plan that I would put writing aside and study some things I had gotten away from in an effort to get a better job. As in better, I mean something that doesn’t make me want to shoot myself in the foot on Sunday night.
Anyway, I always knew the subconscious mind was a powerful thing, but I hadn’t thought about it in awhile.
After two days of studying and not writing, I woke up with some great ideas for the chapters I had stopped working on for Vallar 2. This turned into. “I have to write this before I forget.” So I ended up writing last week at least double the normal amount. So much for plans. I realized my subconscious wants me to keep writing so bad that it gave me something to write about.
I’ve used dreams for story ideas. I even think about plot problems before I go to bed and wake up with answers. Using the subconscious mind has always been fun. But I hadn’t expected my subconscious to do something in quite this way.
And even after all this, I still feel doubt and still feel that I should put writing further down the list of priorities. Just because of my situation. There are so many obstacles. But I won’t give up on it. This is what I go back and forth on constantly. Yikes...
What’s left if we give up our dreams? Nothing but boringness. (Of course, some find different dreams)
