Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Story ideas pennyeach — I’m not using ’em, so feel free

Delivery of Discovery


First in a series, quite possibly…

OK, here’s the pitch. A man and a woman are serving on the international space station and fall in love. While everyone else is out space-walking, they consummate their feelings for each other in zero gravity. (It might help to imagine Sandra Bullock and George Clooney here.) Months later, the woman is pregnant, but after the birth it becomes clear that child is…weird.

Improvise the rest.

Working title: “SPACE BABY.”

You can mail me a penny if you do something phenomenal with it!


Last few hours to buy Yesterday Road for $1.99.

    Hahaha. I love that the child is…weird. I’m thinking she’s gone emo and the astronaut parents just don’t understand her!

    Ha! One of my blogger friends has a space sci-fi-fantsay ghost story out there where that is actually the plot, sort of, it is a horror story set on a space station that has become a haunted house.

    After reading Mary Roach’s book on the unsanitary conditions in a space ship, I can’t think of romance. Yikes. Let’s just say that when it comes to bodily functions, gravity is the best friend you didn’t know you had.

      A lot of troubling scenarios come to mind sans gravity…

    Well, Eric just killed any desire on my part to work with your story idea … 😉
