Each Tuesday, rather than a POSSIBLY IRRITATING ESSAY, I'd like to both challenge you and lend a helping hand. I generate more speculative and teen story ideas than I can ever use. My family rolls its collective eyes when I say, "Hang on a second! I just have to write down this idea..." Here, I'll include the initial inspiration (quote, website, podcast, etc) and then a thought or two that came to mind. These will simply be seeds -- plant, nurture, fertilize, chemically treat, irradiate, test or stress them as you see fit. I only ask if you let me know if anything comes of them. ? z Z

This week has been insanely busy. I’ve been editing a friend’s book and my edits just arrived or HEIRS OF THE SHATTERED SPHERES…I also have two OTHER markets that will be happy to look at stories…one of them wants me to ADD more; the other wants me to take a bunch OUT…(fortunately it’s two different stories…)
Upshot here is that I’m gonna throw out an idea and let anyone who wants to, run with it.
Idea: If all Humans on Earth looked like and lived like the old version of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, what would the starship they built look like? Where would they go? How different would they be from the Robinson Family of LOST IN SPACE?
