Uguisu – short fiction

Every now and then a bird cries at the window in my room. I have never once thought about what it means. My mind has been stuck on a nagging discomfort for the past eleven months.

Simulation [Writing Stub]

Augustus slapped on his SimGlass and blinked into his personna.

It’s July.  International novel writing month is in November.  You should participate this year.  See what you have on your schedule for November.  Clear what you can, and keep your evenings open.  Nanowrimo takes at least two hours per day on average if you write with reckless abandon, and you should.
