I want to discuss how SF does music, and music does SF. Music can be a critical component of the story. It has indelible links to SF films. Some music even transfers to stories it was never intended for. The game is on. What are your favorite SF stories and film music?
First draft: In your first draft you get to be Wild Being of the Woods. Write crazy. Stop and start, veer off, break rules, color outside the lines. Let the story discover itself. Later you can figure out what to do with it.
