When I was in High School I started a story that was intended to be like Ghostbusters only my characters would be busting aliens instead of ghosts. While that was my intent I didn’t end up writing that story because I never plan. What I ended up with was an epic mashup of The X-Files and Babylon 5 about an alien race called the Aklack and what they were doing on Earth.
Well, the Aklack are coming back!
In my mashup there were a few original ideas I’ve always liked and this year for this National Novel Writing Month I’ll be revisiting them and hopefully I’ll end up telling a good story this time.
What I’m sharing here is an exploration of the Universe I’ll be playing in and discovery of my main character, Regina Sinclair (I’ve decided to keep the last name despite being one of the many, many B5 echoes in the original story. Gotta have respect for the roots!)
