this one: meh

i didn’t love it, didn’t hate it, not really sure i completely understood it.

i mean, the words make sense, but i am in agreement with the first comment underneath this story on the tor site:

View Spoiler »

there is a decent sense of pacing and tone, but i do not understand the characters’ reactions, and it reads a little stiff and muddy, like when horror tries to inspire fear by talking around the situation so you fill in the gaps with your own personal demons and that strategy just never works for me.

so, not my favorite tor short.

read it for yourself here:…

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
