I used to think that aliens never visited earth, but lately I’ve had a change of mind. I’m beginning to think aliens have invaded our planet and are causing all the havoc in the world. Almost every place on earth today is in trouble. I think aliens are running all over the place taking human form and creating chaos. We don’t see them because they don’t look alien. And the aliens are very good at speaking different languages, and can make you think that the language they’re speaking is the one you speak. The aliens have come to earth to study us. But I think they’ve become disillusioned with the earth and its people. They were going to take the planet over and enslave everyone, but after seeing what humans are like, decided they’re just going to drive a wedge between all humans. They don’t want to deal with the human b.s. They decided to stand aside and watch humans self-destruct. After humans are gone, they’re taking over the planet.
If so, what would it be about? Make a list of the ideas you want to cover, or themes it might have. If you’ve never considered writing a book, what other major works have you thought about (a movie? a symphony?). Write a paragraph or two about what you imagine it would be like ( I feel as if I’ve written a paragraph already).
I’ve thought of doing all the above at one time or another. If I’ve been at a symphony and the music just takes my breath away, I’ve felt that it would be wonderful to write beautiful music. If I’ve read a really good book, I envy the writer his power with words and dream of writing a great book some day. Or if I’ve seen an excellent movie, I’ve thought of how fantastic it would be to make a great movie. But I doubt I’ll ever write a great symphony or a great movie. But, there’s still the option left to me to perhaps write a really interesting story.
If I wrote a book, it would probably be a family history (ala Alex Haley). It would include my family’s journey from Spain to Puerto Rico. From Puerto Rico to New York. New York and scattering of family throughout the U.S. It’s a journey many Americans could write about from their ancestors’ starting point. It would show a family’s journey through hardships, triumphs, losses, learning new languages as newcomers, customs, etc. The book would be historical. The book would be passed on to future generations of my family. It would be like a sort of family bible. All future generations would be given a gift of the book when old enough to understand the family’s journey. I’ve always thought you have to know where you come from to move forward. And someone is less likely to get in trouble if he/she is aware of all the family history he/she carries within them.
