Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
Hmm…that’s a tough one. The one that I’m working on now is pretty awesome (alas, not my RAF one), but I’m cowriting that one and didn’t come up with the world, so we’ll go with The Continent.
The Continent, my unstuck in time story, has changed it’s world so many times. In its inception, it was a solar system, then it became a planet, and then, I determined it would be best placed on Earth.
It’s a future, an undetermined distance forward in time, where continental Europe has fully become one country to, in the infinite wisdom of the politicians, prevent war. This ticks off the main character, whose brother is one of those politicians. My main story arc follows the members of the Resistance.
I enjoy coming up with the situations surrounding the world, from the political to the every day social. I enjoy history, so I’m researching different historical periods (from Napoleonic to WWII) to determine how I want this world to function socially.
I don’t want to share too much about the other world, because that one’s still in the planning stages. It’s so fun to plan, though.

He doesn’t like the this future version of a super-EU or he doesn’t like the fact that there is no war?
He doesn’t like the super-EU. He thinks countries should govern themselves. While it may have prevented war between the nations, it’s royally messed up all sorts of other social systems. Laws are passed that are good for some portions but mess up others, allowing favored regions to prosper while the rest of the super-EU falters.
Alas, I don’t know near enough about politics and international relations at this point to make the story ring true, so it’s shelved for the time being.
I should have been clearer in my post…oh well.
