Science Fiction- Designers of Tomorrow
Fans of science fiction have long ago realized that modern science and technology can't keep up with the wild imaginations of the likes of Stan Lee or George Lucas. But that doesn't mean that they don't try. It isn't difficult to deduce that hover vehicles, laser weapons and outer space travel are things that exist now because science fiction inspired the minds behind the technology. Anything that exists now, had to start off as an idea, even if it came from a book or movie.
This includes superpowers, well not exactly. But there have been experiments inspired by Wolverine's healing factor (hold the adamantium please) by a few scientific minds who are developing skin that can heal faster than normal. They might be putting band-aids out of business and that's just one example of reality being created from fantasy.
How Real Life is Inspired by Fantasy
For many, fantasy represents more than just a fictional world meant to escape the real one we live in. Fantasy is also the fire that urges us to do better and be better people overall. A valiant knight may not have any dragons to slay at the grocery store, (still bring your sword just in case) but a chivalrous person can assist people in need wherever they may be.
Not all heroes are confined to pages or movie screens.
Fantasy is the spice of life, it's the difference between finishing a task and saving the day. We don't have to look at the world in a black and white lens, let fantasy color to your life. There's more to that popular fantasy novel than a cool story and scary monsters.
Getting your Book Published Just Got Harder.
You might have already begun writing the next popular science fiction/fantasy novel that will inspire others in the near future. It might not be the next Harry Potter, or land you a Hollywood contract for a movie and two sequels (fingers crossed) but your words can reach the people who want to read them. If you are already past your first page then congratulations, you are well on your way.
But what happens after you finally finish that beautiful manuscript? With so many options out there, publishing your book is a lot harder than you think. Not to mention the proofreading, the editing (the psychotic break-downs) and eventually the marketing. But there are still ways to get your book in the hands of your eager readers.
The art of Published Poetry Books of poetry are also included in the struggle of getting published. However, this grueling task can never take away from the art of published poetry. We already know that words can influence the way technology progresses and how we act in our day to day lives. But poetry can influence the way we think and feel. Poems like "Paul Reveres Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou have inspired revolutions by starting in the hearts and minds of their readers. What words will inspire you today?
