In this session of Stray Thoughts, I ponder how to structure the multi-layered world Micah and his companions find themselves in, in The Axis.
Solo: A Star Wars Story was a "box office bomb," but that doesn't mean it has nothing to offer. I talk about the best and worst of Solo as well as what I will take away from it in my future storytelling.
In this session of Stray Thoughts, I introduce a novel I have been working on for year, code names: The Axis. It shares some concepts with Wizard of Oz and Pixar's Inside Out, but blazes its own unique path.
