What if journalists could travel through time? That’s the premise of my Tomorrow News Network series. T.N.N. reporter Talie Tappler and her cyborg cameraman, Mr. Cognis, cover the biggest, most earth-shattering stories in galactic history before they happen.
Sometimes their stories are literally Earth-shattering.
I’m currently preparing to relaunch this project in ebook form. Tomorrow News Network, Volume One, will include the first five short stories. Volume Two will include the next five, and so forth.
It’s important to me that I get this right. It’s really, really important to me that I get this right. And that’s been a problem.
My fear of getting this wrong, even in some minor detail, has seriously held me back. So my plan is to get over my perfectionism and take a chance, knowing that I’ll probably make some stupid mistakes along the way.
I’m relaunching Tomorrow News Network, personal fears and insecurities be damned. And if I do screw this up, I’ll call it a learning experience and try to move on. Because there’s one thing I know for certain: I won’t learn anything if I just sit here worrying about my imperfections as a writer.
