My story is probably going be about to star-crossed lovers who are yet to find each other. And Obviously by the title they live on opposite sides of the earth in the year 2375, where it has been tidally locked.
Yep there near the fringe zone. Where isn't extremely cold or extremely hot. They have a certain gene that renders their body unruffled by the weather (They still feel the cold or heat to certain extremes. But it doesn't affect their bodies). Most of the population without this gene dies out. And I have planned three endings in which they enter a society of Gene-X'rs
I'm thinking of it being by the byproducts of a war between unknown creatures. I'll probably keep it very vague so that if the story ends up really well, I'll be able to make a sequel.
I see this as a story in the Romance section. I also see it as a Serious story because it will symbolize real-life issues. Let's just say the planet their on doesn't really matter.
The way I'm incorporating the effects of a Tidally Locked planet is the creatures and animals that live there. The challenges they will face meeting each other how the isolation from humanity effects them.
I'm thinking of making the story a two-person perspective story. So it will change from character to character. Which will allow the reader to see the effect of each side of the planet.
Do you think that would work? If so will I have to disregard the traditional 2nd person CYOA format and use third person omniscient?
Yes, these two people will meet (That is basically guaranteed in the story.). They have never met before this. They will not try to meet the entire thing will be a big fiasco, which results in them accidentally meeting each other
Sound's like my generation in a nutshell.
How to turn off RTE?
My first update of progress for this week: I've reached 1,000 words.
So now that I am not going to have this story to educate me... what exactly is a tidally locked planet?
By this definition, the Moon is tidally locked to the Earth.
Yes, the moon is. :) Most? Tidally locked planets would be around red dwarf stars though, I don't think our sun would work. It looks like Dave planned to handwave it away with aliens.
This is the prompt I would have picked if I wasn't already working on a story with a tidally locked planet. (Earth settles a distant planet but the colony splits, and a thousand years later the two groups above and below ground mostly think the other is a myth.
Yes, my post is in the Year's end contest. Although I don't know if I should make a whole entire thread.
Yeah, they made a new thread.
