Hey guys, guess what? As the title implied, I got a new book idea just last night!
So… because I told myself I should really cut this out because I already have way too many stories, right now I’m not sure whether to celebrate or slap myself in the face.
How about I’ll do both…?
Nah forget reactions. I’ll keep the idea; I just won’t start writing it.
And now I’ll tell you about it because you’re all so awesome. ;D
Basically, last night we went to Bible Study. Afterwards, we were going to drop by Walmart (which is like 9 miles from the chapel). It was only me and my brother in the back bench, (we have a high-top van) so I had plenty of room. So pretty much I sprawled across on my back and stared up at the sky as we moved.
Funny– you ever notice how the clouds stay right where they are while your car’s racing along the road? (kinda shows how small and pathetic we humans are) (XD) Anyway, it was pretty cool to see that.
We pulled into Walmart’s giant parking lot, but while my dad was trying to find a parking space, I saw a lamppost.
And since I was still in my sprawled upside-down position, (unable to see the road) to me it looked like a pole hanging from something I couldn’t see, with two small ledges on the bottom, and “below” that, a vast, empty space called the sky.
I started thinking (after of course I freaked out, then reminded myself of reality) : What if our world was actually like that?
Picture this: instead of being round, the earth is flat. But we’re not walking on it. We’re hanging from it. There is no gravity holding you to the ceiling. You can’t climb around to the top, because the sides have nothing to hold onto, and are miles high and freezing cold. So instead, sidewalks hang from the Top, with guardrails of course, and below you is a “vast, empty space,” filled with untouchable clouds. So if you slip, or lose your grip on something, you fall into the sky.
Here’s what happens if you fall: you’re free-falling for at least three days. Then, of course, you hit the atmosphere, which is still a layer of gases, but feels like a trampoline. Below you is pure darkness. Far, far above you, light is visible beyond the clouds. In the atmosphere, everything is dim and misty. No one’s there except for you, unless someone falls with you. And in the atmosphere, there’s no way for you to get back to the Top. So you wander around on the eerie trampoline until you go insane from excessive isolation, or you die from starvation.
Yeah, I know, pretty creepy, but cool, right? Crazy how much you can get simply by looking at things from a different angle.
I don’t know much about it other than that for now; I think I’m planning for it to be first person, present tense? That would probably fit best with it, or maybe past tense would do well, too . . .
OKAY I’m thinking out loud now. XD Or . . . thinking on paper? Or Internet paper? XDXD I should probably shut up now.
Cya later, peeps! ;D ^.^
