This project has taken up a lot of my time so I am both excited and saddened that this season is coming to an end. From the beginning to the end the story had taken on a life of its own. The end wasn’t what I had originally planned for but I love it and it will be awesome to begin the next season of Eden One through another set of eyes.
Eden One has by far been the most challenging story I have undertaken so far and I will be the first to say that it at times stressed me out to get each episode finished. It was rough at times to sit down and figure out what was going to happen next. But then again sometimes the story would just flow from my fingertips.
Such is the writers life.
My ideas for Eden One sprang up after my husband and I watched a few of our favorite space related movies. I toyed around with the idea of creating a world and even discussed it with my husband to get his ideas on how to go about creating a space type of story. From there it grew and grew but didn’t take on a life of its own until my fingers began tapping the keys of my laptop and words were put to paper.
The world of Eden One, the planet and the animals, where actually from a dream I had one night while in the planning stages. I loved the thought of a world similar to ours but with vibrant colors and unique beings.
I also enjoyed adding the little back story of how the Duine and Gealtach ended up on Eden One. That is revealed through out the beginning episodes.
The names for the Duine and Gealtach have their origins from the Irish language. The translation for Duine is Human and the translation for Gealtach is Insane.
Season Two will be in the works as a side project so I don’t know when it will be released but hopefully it will be ready by 2016. There will be many new characters in season two but also the original characters will play big parts as well.
Season Two will also explore some of the other space stations mentioned in the first season. Military – Farmers – Engineers – Scientists – Breeders – Doctors – Alphas. Season one focused on the Military and Alphas and you can expect season two to look at these as well but the focus will be more on the Scientists and Breeders stations.
I know I can’t wait to get started. But first I must finish a few other projects first. For insights into season two keep checking back. I’ll post teasers and a cover reveal as I work on it.
