Wednesday writing

I just did 656 words on "Rescue" (working title). This is the first story in the series of related stories I referred to earlier. I completed the first two scenes and more significantly, I found the voice of the story. For me, voice is an important part of the story. When I find the right voice, the story virtually writes itself. That’s what happened with my story "When I Kissed the Learned Astronomer". In this case, the "voice" is that of a 1,200 year old AI, being interviewed for an "oral history" of a program that took place when the AI was a "newborn".

Total words: 656 | Current session: 656 | Net change: +656
