My Spaceship Knows Which Way To Go

This was my home, the place where I grew up, where I learned about the world. Re-creating it in VR was a mistake. It constantly reminds me of my self-delusions of belonging.

Figment

There he is again.

Is he a ghost? An apparition? I‘ve no idea.

All I know is that he isn’t real–not corporeal, I mean. That’s what it’s called, isn’t it?

I’m awfully late this week. I’m stressed out from work and had no idea whatsoever, a complete creative blackout. On Saturday I had an idea that ended up with 149 words. I cut it down to 111 and found that the essence of the story was gone and I was left with words without meaning. I was ready to give up, but I miss you people… So I sat down again, started the same idea from a different angle and now arrived at 100 words with the main theme still intact–and understandable I hope.
