Blog Flash 2012, August 1: Thinking



I was thinking: what will I do with these post-apocalyptic bits? Scenes, dialogues, random shorts and 10x10s?

The PA fascinates me as a character study. What will you do when this world collapses? Will you be a hero or a villain?

I realized I needed two things if I ever hoped to sweep this clutter into a useful book: a narrator and a beginning. A soaring bird seemed to perfect for watching the human ants struggle to reform. Why not a turkey vulture? And to begin, put that bird in a zoo and have the keepers fail to show up.
