I was working in Photoshop on a new cover design and made a mistake, easily fixed with ctrl+z. I’ve been distracted, worried about my first book. And when I refocused, I realized my mistake had just taught me a quick way to make simple planets! I love moments like that, where “oh no!” turns into, “hey that’s cool.” And then I just have to remember my steps. Ha.
Not every mistake means the end of the world, unless you’re a character in a scifi novel.
Science Fiction is all about dreaming up a realistic future. And it’s only fiction because it’s not real, yet. It makes me feel like there’s more out there, waiting for the right time to change the world. We all search for our own escape. Mine is the amazing world of Science Fiction.
