It’s a new year and with it a new frame of mind. Completed chapters 12 and 13 of my new novel this week. I’m pretty sure that exceeds my output for the month of December. I also began drafting the debut issue of my Newsletter so it’s been a productive week.
My writing group also met this week. In my new novel, LOVED MARS, HATED THE FOOD, the Martians do not speak but rather communicate through telepathy. They also communicate with the book’s protagonist, Dix, (who is from Earth) also using telepathy. The group once again challenged the premise that Dix and the Martians would understand each other since Dix spoke English and the Martians did not. First you need to believe that telepathy is possible. There has been some scientific research and it may be a legitimate form of communications. Perhaps more prevalent in the Animal Kingdom. Scientist have been able to conclude whether language exists when communicating through telepathy. If that was the case, why wouldn’t communication between humans and aliens be possible without language?
Remember I’m including a Chapter 1 of LOVED MARS, HATED THE FOOD with my first Newsletter later this month. Don’t forget to sign up if you’re interested.
