With ESOTERIC complete, I no longer have consistently creative post material for Wednesday’s. Friday’s are reserved for flash fiction.

Subsequently, I have decided to post additional creative writing material on Wednesday. These thoughts don’t have to be complete. Occasionally, they might achieve completion on their own merits, but primarily, they exist as passages and attempts, points of inspiration for Later.

Regarding one Future plan: I want to write a sprawling science fiction epic. That plan, in it’s loose form (subject to change), is a finite seven book series. Which, as anyone knows, is a bit of stretch to begin with because I would need some spectacular sales and street cred to even ask for a contract that long, let alone make it that far.

Sidebar: Seven books because of seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, not seven books for Harry Potter. Says something about my inspiration.

Part of this grand plan is to have vast armadas of star ships that navigate the slipstream. I don’t just want to say things like “300 ships in a fleet” and then not know anything else about that fleet. I want names signifying culture and intent. Is it a WARship? A SCIENCEship?

Minding this, I am beginning to curate a list of names. At this point, unculled and raw, many names will share obvious and tangential similarities.

Ultimately, my goal is to assemble a list of 10,000 names. Not exactly plausible but, like “happily ever after” it’s nice to have dreams. To that end, I want to generate somewhere between 25-50 ship names weekly, hoping that will provide me a good catalogue as the years pass. And, maybe they will inspire other stories, too.

These are all names I’ve created since Friday, March 18th, 2016. Yes, many of them are similar. More than a few are incomplete. However, it’s a start.
