My modified version of the Bradbury Challenge continues…
To be truthful, I’ve been working on this challenge since late July and the pressure is getting to me. I really need to finish my re-write of The 14th Mansion, and writing a short story a week is sucking up vital writing resources (commonly referred to head space). But hey, if it being a writer was easy, everybody with a laptop would be J. K. Rowling, wouldn’t they?
Week 13: I wrote a story called Titans Rising, a tale that uses surreal imagery to explore the relationship between humanity and technology. Wasn’t quite able to finish the story, but in keeping with the spirit of the challenge, I moved on.
Week 14: I penned G.E.M., a story about the next step beyond Technologically Enhanced Mindfulness: Genetically Enhanced Mindfulness, or G.E.M. What happens when a particular spiritual viewpoint is embedded in your DNA and you can’t think the way you want to?
Week 15: This week I’ll come up with a new idea, and if there’s time, go back and finish Titan’s Rising.
