Well, the last while, when not doing techie stuff, I've been following the election. Not the US 4 year long process, the Canadian 40 day campaign. The two front runners - the incumbent Liberal and challenging Conservative - started off at agout 34% each and have stayed neck in neck most of the campaign. We've had scandals and slip-ups, several leader's debates, and promises and accusations. Not a lot of difference between the two, so nobody seems that excited about the choice. Meaning one of the two will form a minority government, with less that the majority of overall seats.
This week′s FFF prompt was from a contest for NYC Midnight. It was a micro-fiction – 250 words in 24 hours. Each team in this first heat was given a genre, an action, and a word to include. Mine got fairy tale, falling down the stairs, and silence. I did a twist on the usual, of course.
Well, I did set my objectives, but this is my first update. I was at my girlfriend's, then doing lots of techie stuff wrt podcasting. Not an easy thing to get into. But I did get some writing done too.
Our prompt was to write about climate change, from the view of some activists. Fifty years from now. I'd had a possible 'solution' in mind for a while, so thought I'd try it out in a story. Not sure where this is going. I think 1000 words is a little short to contain the idea, but it's a start. Mine is 992 words.
