For those following along, I laid out the why and then got into the process of the how. Now we’re at a different why. Why do I want to pull all these things together? What is it I’m looking to synthesise? Today’s title is pretty self-explanatory, yet at the same time vague. Not to give anything away, but I want to meld my two passions together. Though not necessarily in the way that might first be expected… or perhaps it is. I’ve made no secret that I have a completed novel that I shopped around to places that would take a look at it without an agent behind it. That’s not all of it; it never is, but its one point of reference in this puzzle. To get sidetracked a moment, the technical aspects of putting together my base of knowledge is something of a means itself for my technical work.
I would like to do a sequel to this completed novel, something more in-depth with the technical aspects, but in a subtle way. This existing novel is a cyberpunk horror work. It is the way in which I intend to be subtle that is a second important point of reference in the puzzle. For note, the puzzle is half as much a puzzle to me as it to everyone else. This is another piece. The way I fit things together informs the way the whole is valuable. What I am doing to a degree is speculating. I won’t get into the whole speculative fiction thing versus sub-genres of it, if indeed it isn’t a sub-genre of some yet nameless over-genre. Back on point It’s important to c-punk to speculate. What I do in my speculation alters the setting. That setting then moulds the horror. Have things become clear?
