Maybe Next Week

Recommended Posts

This story began as an entry for Novawrimo2017.  I started it, but it did not seem right, so I abandoned it for a while.  Eventually, I had a new idea for it and then it all fell into place.  By then it was much too late for the contest, but I wanted to share it anyway.

 

I invite you to join me in an investigation of the relationship between a man and his AI in the fateful year of 2145.

"What a pleasant surprise! I was in the mood for writing just yesterday evening, and decided to pick up the Novawrimo story I thought about last year. Work's ramping up and rather than spend time on Eve, trying to defuse stress with more stress, writing seemed the right option. 

 

I'll change it up a bit, anyway. The setting was to take place in the year AI was banned: 2150, but there are other ideas I could write on, rather than AI. 

 

I hope to read more of your stories in the future.

 

Cheers.

Yes I add my thanks too, Brian. I enjoyed reading it: I really liked your ability to convey the AI, very, very skillfully done.

 

I'll try to write up something in my leisure time for DU, and without any time pressure, though I doubt it will contain any dialogue, whatsoever, not something I can do.
