xenotexting

After watching this, video of Christian Bok speaking about his Xenotext project, I really want to get a copy of the genome of my son, and use that to write a poem.  One doctor has some of it because of testing that was done.

It's not like I haven't written about my son before, but this would really be of him.

Additional note, question.  Why aren't all the science fiction writers all over this project?  They really should be.

Cool beyond words.

Snow day

Snow day here, so I'm editing the novel.

I had a note to myself that I didn't remember the context.  But then I was on another page in a later chapter and I found a connection.  So I just worked that out.  Score.

It is good that sometimes, my notes to myself actually work out.  My memory leaves a little to be desired.  So luckily my notes to my future self work.

In other good news, the feather crest of post-its fanning out from the top of the novel are fewer.  The purpose of the third draft was to lessen these, and for the most part I have.  Now I just have to type in all the changes.

(I do not like the new Post page on Bloglines.  Too much like a Word document.)

Have a good day.  And today is the last day to submit to the PFFA Cupid's Choice Challenge.  Go, submit!!

Have a good one.
