Time Traveling

“Once confined to fantasy and science fiction,
time travel is now simply an engineering problem.”
Michio Kaku

Mr. Peabody, his boy Sherman and the “Wayback Machine”

The concept of traveling backward and forward in time has always held my fascination. My interest began as a child. Introduced to the idea of time travel by none other than Mr. Peabody and his Wayback machine.

Conceptually, time travel goes back several centuries. Long before H. G. Wells wrote the book, The Time Machine, Japanese, Hindu, and Buddhist all wrote about time travel. In more recent times, people such as Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and Michio Kaku have discussed the possibilities of traveling back and forth in time.

Time travel will forever be one of my favorite genres of novels and movies. Whether I’m reading Stephen King’s novel 11/26/63 or watching, Midnight in Paris, and Back to the Future for the hundredth time, the idea of going back to a time before I existed will always hold my interest in time traveling.

After that, things can only get better.”

The best advise I’ve read from accomplished writers is when you’re writing a novel, to just sit down and start writing. Sounds easy, but unless you’ve tried writing when you’re not inspired, it’s a tough task to accomplish.

Here I am entering week two of 2016, and I’ve yet to sit down as I had planned to work on my novel which I started in mid 2015. Even though I have fifty pages finished, I just can’t seem to get going. I have cut back on my reading so I’d have more time for writing, but just can’t seem to get writing.

So, starting Monday I’ve decided to try a method I read about recently where you sit down, set a timer for 25 minutes and just force yourself to write. If I’m going to get anywhere with my writing, I need to hunker down and write – write – write.
