I don't know why, but this is amusing me no end right now.
I'm working on a larger post about the
gumption I managed to rustle up in November. In the meantime, I'm watching some extremely fucked up movies
and researching octopuses
in order that I might better write about them
I didn't know they had nine brains. I did know that they're intelligent, because they can predict football results. I think that anthology is going to be really wild. Haven't written anything yet, though.
Debs, I didn't know that either. And three hearts! They really are amazing animals. The one documentary I watched showed how far back their evolutionary line split from the one occupied by vertebrates: far. I have an idea for a story that feels to me like the only obvious response for this call, which means either that it is unique to me and my perspective, or tons of others will be doing the same thing. Who knows? I plan to start writing tonight.
I had a go today. My idea felt a little on the nose. First contact with octopoidal (sic)space aliens. Of course, it's not always the idea it's the execution. Still . . .
Good luck with yours.
Excellent. My story's going to start with earthly (oceanly?) octopodes who experience their own close encounter, so maybe we've got a theme going.
Is that a bear? That's hilarious.
