Future Technology Predictions

Science fact today vs. Science fiction tomorrow. You think of it. Many say there's no such thing as creativity anymore, that everything that can be thought of for fiction has been thought of. I don't believe it.

I believe that some one made a similar statement in the late 19th century saying that everything that needs to be invented already has. Coming up with new ideas is possible, but definitely difficult.

I think it is harder to be original, as art and creativity, and more specifically as a genre, because of its natural growth.

I think now, its usually down to how we execute our ideas, which is more important than creating a new precedent. This may not be such a bad thing because it pushes the quality of our works, rather than relying on new gimmicks or ideas...

I always welcome quality however there needs to be something new otherwise it is just a rehash another spin of the same tune we as authors have to bring some thing more to our writing than a change of perspective we need to do as the greatest authors do put a reality a moral a transcendental truth if you will in to our writing its not easy its not for the faint of heart

as to the gadgets use them to inspire to those who read your stories by making them say I want one of those
