So This is the Bandwagon, Is It?

Far too serious lately, and spending all my time writing code. So this from asakiyume was a welcome invitation.

I'm going to do the meme going around because playing story games is fun.

If you feel like playing . . .


Tell me about a story I haven’t written, and I’ll give you one sentence from that story.

Oh, the one I had the working title "The Caucus Planner" for? Nobody got the Martin Short reference, so I ended up calling it "Do You Want to Be El General for the day?". Also a bit obscure, but that got it sold to that Zamoglian SFF 'zine. Shame about the coup, or it might have seen print.

She opened her eyes, mental checklist at the ready: pencil moustache, broad epaulets, italian boots, break on the cuff, medals aligned, ceremonial sword polished, shoulders out, back straight, feet aligned.... every single detail missing from the slouched, frightened, and slightly sweat-moist youth before her; it would be a long day.

:D Haha! Perfect!

It's things like this make me wish I could invite you and CS over for dinner. We would have so much fun.

(If you ever feel inclined to write up *any* of your starts on this page, I'd be eager to lay my hands on a draft)

Actually, I'm working on a story now that I'd like you to take a look at. When I finally get the time to finish it!

How does the title "The Politics of Bird Flight" grab you?

It grabs me quite strongly--good, firm grip!
