"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair."

Douglas Adams

Nothing ever ends poetically.
It ends and we turn it into poetry.
All that blood was never once beautiful. It was just red.

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing

Always that lurking shark-in-the-water feeling underneath the euphoria of a really good #writing session. That sense of menacing threat that the next one will be painful.

Just me? #andwriting ✍️

Hi all! For , I'm currently a freelance writer and editor (and recovering cybersecurity writer) with a love of writing sci-fi and fantasy in my free time. I'm working through hopefully my last major revision for my first novel, while also doing some micro and flash fiction on the side which I'm trying to get in the habit of posting on Medium instead of just letting it molder unseen.

This is also my first time using Mastodon, so exciting times all round.
