Have you ever created a parallel universe?
If a writer is famous, said writer will have things like interviews. You would click on Famous Writer’s website, and there would be links to such interviews. Obviously, I can’t actually link to The New York Times or some parallel universe equivalent. And a blog doesn’t allow you to dramatically alter a blog page to look like a newspaper…and while I can create a newspaper type document on my laptop, I can’t post it in a blog post because the fonts, columns, pictures, etc. won’t simply copy into the post.
I also have an idea for the characters of the novels to contribute…but for similar formatting reasons can’t pull that off either.
Free blogs don’t really have that much flexibility (freedom for imagination), do they? Hence the free.
I’m not even sure a regular paid-for website could do what I want. Certainly not on my budget–my budget being $0. This project isn’t going to make me any money after all, so taking money from our there-is-no-money-for-random-projects budget isn’t going to happen.
If you’ve any thoughts or suggestions, please tell me.
My parallel universe might not be as vast as I’d like. Not at the moment anyway.
P.S. And to make the parallel universe interesting, it has to have a story. Reading about the daily routine of a famous writer isn’t much more interesting than listening to the daily routine of an unknown writer. So…something else has to happen over there.
All the same, my parallel universe is here.
