But, when I was younger, I had a desire to write works of Science Fiction set in a Galactic Empire. I got the idea from Brinn Aldiss's two volume anthology, "Galactic Empires". And, I wished to write about a really mean and scary Galactic Empire, so I decided to read up on two actual, historical Empires that most love to hate: namely Commie Russia and Nazi Germany. Still, having read Orwell's book, I was fascinated with the entire idea of Totalitarianism.

Needless, nothing came of it. I guess, I could work on writing something else, instead. Perhaps, I could work on a mere Star System Empire. That would, perhaps, have been a much better idea too. It was fun while it lasted, but having no idea about Story Structure, I kept on writing and writing and writing, as long as I possibly could. I suppose, it became an obsession with me.

Looking back, I realize that my stories, and attempts at novels, were not really all that good. Perhaps, just perhaps, I should write non-fiction instead. At any rate, I should endeavor to write from another genre.

i don't think it sounds silly at all. i've always been fond of creating fictional worlds and realms...at first they were towns, then bigger towns...then cities, countries, planets, only recently have i graduated to galactic empires.

the most developed one aims to restore the the seventh segment of the universe it inhabits, which was corrupted during its creation, at the expense of the home planet where the opposition lies.

and yes, more often than not i've incorporated the idea of totalitarianism. the atrocities and victims aside, some sects of fascism had a good aesthetic built for themselves, which may possibly be isolated from the associated regime. i read orwell's book in the 10th grade.

i think it's cool you can bring yourself to write about it, because aside from dry descriptions and bullet-point histories...i can't. i've always liked reading nonfiction more, and writing it has been easier for me as well.

It is really exciting too. I think I will branch of into Lovecraftian Fiction as well. That would be a good idea!

I wouldn't call it silly. I had a similar idea at one point, but that was as far as it ever went.
