Earthshine

Post by joecool on May 10th 2014, 9:43 pm

Hey, guys. Here's the opening to my novel. I figured it might get me serious about finally writing it, instead of endless research. Trying to do this the way Strods did. Hope it works out.

Interesting beginning. Good descriptive detail. Sounds like you may have actually spent some time in the desert. I'll admit to curiosity of where this is going.

Chapter 1 takes a leap forward of 1500 years. Two Muslim astronauts are on their way to the moon. Besides accomplishing this technological feat, the mission's other main objective is to unite the two main Islamic factions. After arrival, one is killed by a micro-meteorite, and the other finds evidence that they're not the first men on the moon. The rest of the novel is his search for the truth back on Earth...which had barely survived an east-west war a few centuries earlier.

Two muslim astronauts... Sounded like the beginning of joke lol. I could make a good story right now that would have US astronauts discovering we weren't the first beings on the moon.

Sorry, but it's already been done. Apollo 19 came out last year. I watched the first half hour or so and moved on. Sleep

The next installment. (This is starting to feel like one of those weekly serial adventures back in the '40s)

In the name a god of course and they both will get almost a hundred virgins when they die as their reward. (Some folks are just not very smart but our God still loves them and despite being totally deceived by the devil let's hope they go to the moon and get saved up there before they kill one another).

If they got saved on the moon would Jesus be the man in the moon...?  Smile. I read Aldrin and another guy performed communion on the moon.

Have you heard about the pregnant Christian woman they are hanging for not converting to Islam? Muslim nations have too many wars and violence to be able to work toward a noble endeavor.
