“When I used to teach creative writing, I would tell the students to make their characters want something right away - even if it's only a glass of water. Characters paralyzed by the meaninglessness of modern life still have to drink water from time to time.” - Kurt Vonnegut

Thursday Prompt:  "It was a dark and stormy night."

-----

It was a dark and stormy night.

...

...

...

...

...

Eventually, however, the sun came up, as it always does sooner or later.

And the clouds cleared, as they always do sooner or later.


Ob-la-di, ob-la-da

Life goes on, bra

La-la, how the life goes on

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da

Life goes on, bra

La-la, how the life goes on

Wow!  Interesting that in my story "Marooned on Tashoo" my protagonist, William Henry Watson, did want something right away just as Kurt Vonnegut said that he used to tell his students to do with their protagonist.  In William's case, he wanted to hold the record for the highest flight by a civilian.  I did this long before I even read this quote.

Interesting!  You were doing it right, then, at least by Vonnegut's lights.   :D

True but almost immediately after achieving that goal a new goal formed in his mind.  After reaching 60 km in altitude he noticed how insignificant everyone on the Earth actually is and saw the infinity of space and his new goal was to go into space.  6 years later, he achieved this goal when, after graduating from the Interstellar Terran Naval Academy, he was commissioned an Ensign in the Interstellar Terran Navy as a fighter pilot.  The first 4 chapters of the story are only the lead-in to the main story of him being marooned on a world 25 light years away.  This world is called Tashoo (Earth in their language); hence, the title "Marooned on Tashoo".
