How’s your week been? We’ve got a little bit left, and you know what that means…
Let’s get to it.
One of the writing opportunities I was looking into (not one of the internships/training ones) was given to someone else, so there’s one thing down.
I’ll be submitting my piece for the apprenticeship today, which should prove interesting. On a separate note, the guys who were deciding about the paid internship/training for helping them with Facebook stuff are supposed to decide this week who they’re going to train.
And I still have the new gig starting in a little over a week–the one where I’ll be the one training people.
Interesting times, but in a nice way.
For some strange reason I was thinking about time a couple days back.
This week’s Fabulous Fiction Friday prompt is:
In your character’s world, each day is one second longer than the day before.
Okay, so we’ve just got a setting detail, really–no gender, backstory, or what-have-ya on the character side, so you’ll have to slip those in yourself. And I’d have to think about a problem for this world, although I could think of several…
How about Leslie starts out working 8 hours a day in an office, and after a year, her boss gets word from On High about mandatory overtime? Splicing these multicolored rocks on a strange asteroid is hard enough–especially in sub-zero conditions. That may not be a bad thing–but for some reason the days are getting longer, and she’s sleeping less and less for some reason.
Conrad’s job making predictive models started out as a great thing–everything was measurable. Until somebody figured out days were permanently getting longer…and longer. Not by much. But if time itself can’t be measured accurately, Conrad’s figuring greater things than his gig will be at stake…
That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill, I think.
December 2018’s first week is gone. My podcast has a sponsor or two, so that’s cool. Not sure what to do/how to think about that realization.
Make it a great weekend with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
