about ‘Infinity’

Unlike most of my stories, Infinity is more of an experiment.  Usually when I write a story I like to construct it, plot it out, have a basic frame and plan out not all but some of my major twists.  It’s like creating a piece of art, you mull over it until it’s perfect, sometimes reshaping over and over again.  I have outline after outline, character list after character list, scene after scene, situations and people so developed that when I go to writing, it all comes together.  This is just my way of doing things and some writers wouldn’t agree.  However, with this series (which as indicated by its title has no projected end) I will just write on a whim and see where the story itself takes me.  Don’t expect every post to be magnificent and planned out because it won’t.  But the story will be thrilling, at times short and others long.  The characters are based off real people, and some of the news events are real as well.  Once Infinity gets going it might be hard to keep up with if you hadn’t read them from the beginning so I encourage anyone interested to do so.  The “chapters” or posts will be simply numbered.  Eventually I will post an update with a current cast of characters and what has happened so new readers can catch up on the series. What inspired Infinity other than the idea of a weekly experimental fiction thrill?  Spending five months living and working in a professional news environment in Washington DC opened the door for inspiration.  The vigilante hacker group Anonymous which became the story I got myself caught up in chasing while I was there also played a key role.  And Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series starting with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo thrilled me in a Joel Rosenberg-ish way to bring some of my own ideas to life.  I hope readers look forward to the weekly posts as much as I’ll look forward to writing them.
