It’s Writing Prompt Wednesday and week two of July’s Camp NaNoWriMo, that 30-day writing challenge when you set your own word count goal. How’s everyone doing? If you’re stuck, sometimes it helps to mine story ideas from the real life news.
For example, back in May 2016, Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert gave a speech against sending gay couples up in space if NASA were ever to move forward with a space colony after an apocalyptic event on Earth. He claims gay couples wouldn’t help propagate. He also rambles a lot in his 4:47 clip. So many angles on this story folks! So. Many. Angles. It’s worth a quick view while you take a break from Pokemon Go.
Need more proof of the wealth of creative fodder this story offers? Give a listen to this brief tune “Gay Space Colonies” by Rocky Mountain Mike. Inspired.
