Today's #5minutefiction is themed "your character writes a novel in one month" in honor of #nanowrimo.

I never saw what the problem was, writing a book. And calling 50,000 words a book? That’s a novella at best. I write more than that in my emails.

So, well, you know those disclaimers you sometimes get at the bottom of emails? The “intended for the intended recipient who should receive it and nobody else” disclaimers? Those got me thinking.

All that writing? That’s mine. And it can be yours, for the low price of $2.00 ePub, kindle, or PDF, or $12 print. What, you didn’t get an important email for me? Maybe it’s in the book.

Maybe I should start a magazine.

Hey, Kaolin, how are you? :) Tried to reach you recently, no luck.
Would you like a Christmas card?

Re: Clever!
As long as you answer (say) one in three of my communications, and I don't bug you too often, I figure we'll still be active friends. :) [Based on my non-scientific intuitive basis that I like knowing what my friends are up to.}

Book: Enjoy! (Welcome to the world, post-Rising. . .)

Friend: Someday biochemical depression will be entirely solved by science, and we'll be left with purely existential issues. Until then, it's better living through chemistry for fun and profit.

Christmas card: I'll make it non-religious. Put it on your mantel, feed it to your cat, show it to Amy!

Am: Blissfully enjoying my post-barbecue burger from the local grill. I either like or don't mind the holidays, because I just tune out the commercialism and enjoy the good stuff. (Subject to my definition of what is "good" . . .)

Re: Clever!
main complaint re: holidays -- that's when everyone thinks you have to be social. I have enough trouble getting stuff done without that. :)

now: blissfully enjoying thai-related food coma :D or at work, depending. ;) :) *HMM* No, actually working.

Re: Clever!
I like social in small doses. :) I still don' t really enjoy big parties, for instance, but I enjoy good conversation. It's almost an art form.

I'm back to work after a break running errands. Picked up some boxes at Wal-Mart -- I'm shipping off a lot of old World of Darkness books. Why? Because someone is buying them (I got $140 plus the shipping costs prepaid), and I can now justify buying *new* gaming books. . . Most expensive reading material I own, besides my law books.

And so the wheel turns. :)

There's a great new game you would probably enjoy reading, purely because it's about transhumanism. I'm probably going to buy it.

Eclipse Phase is a pen & paper roleplaying game of post-apocalyptic transhuman conspiracy and horror.

An "eclipse phase" is the period between when a cell is infected by a virus and when the virus appears within the cell and transforms it. During this period, the cell does not appear to be infected, but it is.

Players take part in a cross-faction secret network dubbed Firewall that is dedicated to counteracting "existential risks" — threats to the existence of transhumanity, whether they be biowar plagues, self-replicating nanoswarms, nuclear proliferation, terrorists with WMDs, net-breaking computer attacks, rogue AIs, alien encounters, or anything else that could drive an already decimated transhumanity to extinction.

Your mind is software. Program it.

Your body is a shell. Change it.

Death is a disease. Cure it.

Extinction is approaching. Fight it


: ) :)
