The future is white?
Bob, the future has been white since the 60’s.

The future has been white for a long time, thanks to the likes of Stanley Kubrick and the folks at Apple. Thats why the theme I’m crafting for this website, is called “Clean Future”. I took the “Open Sourcerer” theme by Alan Lord, and modifying it until it suits my tastes. I’m still debating whether it will look like a glass UI or hand-drawn doodles. Maybe I’ll go all out and create a full AJAX powered UI. We’ll see. I’m sure it will remain white and light grey. And I’ll take it as far as I feel it makes sense to do so. So if anyone has any suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments below. I’ll make the modified theme available once I finish working on it.
Another fine morning and another beautiful sunrise rising over Toronto. This may seems like a common theme, but I love the mornings. I love the mornings cause it matches my personality. I am a forward thinker. I enjoy peering into the future. Little wonder why I enjoy trying out beta software. Or why I follow future trends. And I feel happy when I see I bright future coming.
The sky just turned a flamelike orange. And the Sun is a brilliant orange ball of light. Amazing how far away the Sun is, and yet how bright and warming it is. Beautiful.
I figured out my plot and my setting for the science fiction novel I plan on writing. Interestingly the setting turned out a composite of reality and my own past imaginings. And plot, influenced heavily by games and novels that I played and read through, should be rather original. While the novel recycles many of my old ideas, I think it will be original as a composition.
I also found two main characters. Should prove to be an interesting duo. An interesting contrast of personalities, hopefully that will drive the story forward. Part of me is proud of my achieving believable characters in such a simple manner. Part of me is telling me to not reveal too much and to mix it up more. As Marika notes: getting good characters is something a writer has shape, model and chisel away at.
I think I will start the story off in the morning, with the sunrise. I run off to write the first chapter.
If you are wondering about the strange collage of colours on this blog, well, it is totally my fault. Basically while the default Blogger themes are nice, I find them limiting. So I grabbed the thisawayBlue theme from Blogger, and started to replace elements in it. I am still a long ways from getting the right mix of colours. So please expect some breakage and truly zany colour combinations. I promise I’ll find and implement a decent looking theme in the next few weeks.
