The following is all based off the memories of machines. Machines aren’t known to lie.
Several centuries ago there was the Confederate Colonies of Earth, the CCE. The CCE had been around for many years and did so by rarely governing its domain. It was an advisor to colonies that didn’t want to have anything to do with each other.
Society had been preserved in the aforementioned colonies. The colonies resided under sheltering domes and large pavilions made of whatever molecular…Continue

Mayor Aesopop of Grail - a town in the forest whose people live in hallowed trees -
stood at the podium for the town meeting. Questions were instantly fired at him by Grail’s frantic people. “What are we to do? Should we leave? Where will we go?” A voice cried out over a great gaggle of voices.
The mayor told them, “all that can be done has been done. A sanitorium has been established a great distance from here.”
“How can we be certain that this Sanitorium is still…

I have just finished reading "A Monster Calls" By Patric Ness from an original idea by Siobhan Dowd. Patric Ness was asked to write what would have been Siobhan Dowd's fifth book, "She had the characters, a premise and a beginning. What she didn't have, unfortunately, was time" (From the Author's note), sadly she passed away from Cancer before she got a chance to write her story herself.
It is the most beautiful and terrible thing I have read in a long time.
I read it all in…Continue

Yesterday I started reading the fault in our stars, so naturally I finished it today.

I love to write. I’ve written a draft of a book that I am continually working on and making better but now I am helping someone else with their work!

I really look forward to seeing how everything plays out.
As a ‘learn as I go’ writer I find this ‘editor’ thing is really great for me. To get to see…Continue

Listen, Jena, after that great lunch you whipped up yesterday I showed your brother my newly organized library and talked our way into the idea that books and stories make places and experiences immeasurably better.
Phrases like “those who can’t do teach” and “get your nose out of a book” suggest that reading about some exciting place is a poor or cowardly man’s way of seeing it for himself. The idea there is that reading is a poor imitation of actual experience.
