Reading The Martian... what if?
13 August, 2020 - 1 min read
I'm currently reading Andy Weir's 'The Martian'.
I loved the movie, the combination of engineering and the 'just get it done' approach always appealed to me. I always admired the main character's mental health because (in the movie at least) he just keeps plodding along working on the next project without any signs of depression or self doubt.
It's too early for me to know if this appears in the book yet. But that's beside the point.
The thought occurred to me that if I ever wrote a book. I could write it as a series of blog posts or journal entries...
I journal everyday already about my own (boring) life. So imagining an interesting situation or scene and writing the story as a journal wouldn't be too far of a stretch.
I'm not sure if anyone else would want to read it. But at the very least, it would lend itself to my writing style.
Something to think about.
