Another writing tidbit for today: My short story for Murmuration, “All the Literati Keep an Imaginary Friend”, is now up to read for free.
So you ask, How have you been feeling? And you ask, Do you have trouble rebooting? And you ask, Do you experience difficulty preparing yourself for missions?
How did killing thirty three people, twelve of whom were children, make you feel in the morning?
Did you find yourself altering your flight path for reasons you couldn’t identify?
Do you take unnecessary risks?
The heads-up display registers responses, such as there are. You scan each carefully for any indication of emotional distress. You take copious notes. You bill the government five hundred dollars an hour. The taxpayers go to bed with the warm, fluffy reassurance that someone somewhere is still suffering for what no one wants to do but what no one wants to stop doing, either.
And if you like what Murmuration is doing, we could use your support.
