Stuff arising from today

It’s been a week where I have tried to put my best foot forward and do better and for the most part it’s working. I don’t want to say that an achievement is not shouting at my 5 year old son, but to be honest, I have been dealing with him in a more measured sense and it’s working. Trying to rebuild the family dynamic isn’t easy, but nowt of value is ever easy.

As part of sparking his imagination, our trip to school takes an imaginary short cut through what he calls ‘Dinosaur World’, but today we were in a Dragons & Knights world, that had Dinosaurs who had escaped their world’s destruction. The knights helped the dragons protect people from bad dragons and meat eating dinosaurs. Ok, that is all from him. I was impressed with the idea (and the leap in imagination) and took it a step further. How about a world for abandoned times and places, some dinosaurs, some dragons (or dragon like creatures) medieval knights and other lost bits of worlds. Like Battleworld from Secret Wars, but without the superheroes and villains (or Jim Shooter, but that’s beside the point) cluttering the place up. What would that world look like, what would life be like there. What would happen if a house from our world was planted there, what would the person living there do? Pipes, but no water in them, wires, but no electric current. What would his/her needs be, would there be other people there, could he communicate with them. Am thinking of maybe a series of short stories with this premise and would appreciate thoughts criticisms (beyond that it’s not an entirely original idea, this I am aware of) and the like.


Only a quick one, but I wanted to get at least something down today.
