When George Lucas read Hero with a Thousand Faces, he created a SF movie series that did its job and expand the imagination of numerous movie viewers. Believe it or not, I nearly had a chance to talk with George Lucas about my ideas. But no such luck. What I want to do is to masterfully blend the studies I do and what I like. Here's a list of things.
1. Combine Sub-Genres, Space Opera, Hard SF, Soft SF, Speculative SF and so on.
2. Take what I learn from Reported E.T.s and Conspiracy Theories, add real science to create a setting that makes Alien Abduction and Intelligent Martians more believable for the reading audience.
3. Put SF, normally good for Mass Market Books, into Graphic Novels to create SF graphic novels that both Hard SF fans and comic book fans will like.
4. Put all aliens in same setting: Reported Aliens, Speculative Biology and so on. Take Reported Aliens and use real science to make them believable, such as explaining that the Greys who abduct people are actually alien cyborg drones working with and for other aliens.
There's more coming.
Good ideas, but until you write them, that's all they are. Sit down and write. Then write some more. Get up tomorrow morning and do it again. Rinse and repeat. Ideas get you nowhere. Turning teh ideas into good stories is what matters. There's no reason you can't learn to do this, but you have to spend more time writing, and less time trying to find someone else to do it for you. You have what it takes, and if you focus your energy on actually writing, on learning how to tell a story yourself, you'll probably get where you want to be.
