I had a dream in which a technology called Black Technology (so called because all of its structures and machines were black) was discovered and then systematically destroyed by scientists who built White Tech based on Black Tech. I’m not really sure what it means, but I wonder if black tech represents stuff that isn’t inheritantly Christian, like, on purpose. I don’t think that everything a person writes has to be geared with that stuff in mind. Tolkien’s work could arguably represent Gandalf as Jesus just as much as Lewis’s Aslan does.
However, I’m going to try to write some “white tech”, not that I intend on eradicating black tech even from my own work. The dreams ends with white tech destroying black tech, only to be wiped out by a giant wave of some kind of energy. I woke up just before the wave reached me. I saw it coming. I don’t know if I’ll one day dream and the wave will wipe me out, too,or what.
Lord, please be present with me in my writing. Help me to write what is good, and avoid what is bad. I’m not sure if there can truly be a writing apart from You, and I probably should write with you in mind. I’m not going to give you conditions or attempt to force you to act or not to act during this time. I will try to write what pleases you, and not just for myself.
Okay, so I’m ready for a new project, now that my module is in the hands of a designer who can make it eye catching. What now? A new module? A book? A comic? A script? What am I passionate about now? The intial honeymoon phase of writing is probably ended. Now that I’m not playing megaten for the moment, and perhaps for a long time, what do I want to write about? Nothing comes to mind.
All right, well, there’s no sense forcing it. If I can’t think of it now, I’ll come back to it.
At least I wrote something, even if I don’t know what it will become.
