Blog-break: doing NaNoWriMo
So don't expect a prolific month on the blog.
I hope by the end of November to have a fairly poor first draft with flashes of something interesting I can build on for Round 2. So that's got to be the priority.
What's the story about? I'm not entirely sure yet, but making-it-up-as-I-go-along screwball transhuman satire seems to about cover it at this stage.
Here's the first fragment.
Arthur C Clarke - Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Reformulation 1 - Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from manic.
Reformulation 2 - Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from science.
Reformulation 3 - Any sufficiently advanced social science is in indistinguishable from magic.
