The "STEEM"?

Have you been watching Star Wars lately??

I wonder what you buy at a big space sale. By the scale.

This story reminds me of one my siblings and I wrote with my writer uncle which wound up sending the protagonist and his uncle Chimborazo (he was tall) to Carnegie Hall.

Sort:  

Well, you should check out the Steemwars Steemshelf. I linked to it. Steem Wars is a community wide sci-fi mash-up parody event, run from The Writers' Block. It has bits out of every known sci-fi concept, from Star wars to Star Trek, to even Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy. ;-) We're doing parodies of parodies. It's a hoot. And not too late to join in!

I did see the announcement back at the start and was seriously tempted to try, but had to admit defeat when I took a look at my current project load. It's been fun reading everyone's contributions (I like the pilot AI concept - I've used that idea myself before). In the meantime, I'm living vicariously through you guys.

There are so many Writer's Block initiatives and ideas that look like fun: I just have to figure out how to carve time out of my life to participate properly!

Yeah time is precious, isn't it? Too bad you can't join us. sigh

Not this time. But I haven't forgotten you. I keep up when I can and I'm getting better and better about getting back to all my pre-kid favorite things. I'm working in the yard and crocheting again - I just have to crochet in the car and work in the yard with babies in the carrier. If I can learn not to tunnel vision while writing, I may be able to do more of that in the future.

The tunnel vision is a problem, though. Catastrophes can be taking place around me and I don't notice until far too late...
