The Stuff We Don’t Do [Apr. 1st, 2014|09:03 pm]

Here is my latest Nature (Physics) Futures short, The Stuff We Don’t Do. It’s also available as a podcast. Go, read or listen, enjoy.


I’m pretty proud of this one. My inner angry 16-year-old is right about things sometimes. Thanks to Timprov for being the most local and immediate of the three positive inspirations for this story. Bonus points to anyone who can spot the other two–or, for that matter, the most notable of the negative inspirations.

Oh that's wonderful. I'm sure it will all end in tears. Or the universe collapsing in itself. Or some other grownup problem.

Was a first season New-Who episode one of the inspirations?

I really liked that! I hope to read it aloud at a milk-and-cookies storytelling circle sometime.

Hee, well, yes, I wrote it at about the lowest point of the lockout.

I read it as having two titles, and they're both "The Stuff We Don't Do": the two titles translate to "the things that are outside the acceptable range of behavior" and "the things we neglect to do." They both fit! Which one did you have in mind (or both, or something else)?

Both, but I am Minnesotan enough that the former was primary for me.
