Lost Theories I

After last night's episode of "Lost", I have a few theories on what's going on. I'm going to try and add these after every episode. A few of the below are theories that date back a while.

 


  1. Widmore, as we saw, was on the island in the past. He eventually must have become a leader of the other's and ultimately moved the island. Of course, whoever moves the island can't go back. This is why Widmore is on a quest to find the island. He feels Ben stole it from him.
  2. The island or someone, is moving Faraday, Locke and the others in the group through time stategically. It's trying to save itself. So they are moving about to crucial times to save the island. We saw how Faraday knew what to do with the bomb. He told the people of that time period how to do it. After they "jumped" to another time, those he told must have taken his advice. Had Faraday not been there to tell them, the island would have blown up. I believe we'll see more "saving" of the island in episodes to come.
  3. Jack, Kate, Ben and those off the island (including the dead Locke) need to return to save the island. It's crucial that these ones are on the island so it can move them through time to save the island also. By their leaving, they have potentially destroyed the island.
  4. Finally, I believe the show will end with the island in tip top shape and Jack as the leader of the others.

That's all that comes to mind right now. Stay tuned for next week.

Designing a Book Cover - The Third Layer

In my last post, I spoke about "The Second Layer" of designing a book cover, which is making sure you title stands out well.  Now we head to "The Third Layer". This one probably will seem obvious and it complements "The Second Layer" . It is your author name. It's important that your author name be positioned and sized correctly. There are a few approaches to this. For well known authors—for instance Stephen King or James Patterson—having the author name prominent and big on the cover is good. The reason is, their names are so popular that the author name sells the book more so than the book title sells it. As a self-published author you could use this thought process for your cover to give the impression that you are a popular author. Of course, your mileage will vary with this approach. The other option is to not allow the author name to dominate the content. So you would want it to be smaller than the title. You could even make it barely noticeable
