Sounds like an interesting premise. What a pity that this story you’d been working on for so long was pre-emptively censored and shamed out of existence by a creative writing class (!?!). Perhaps, since it happened so long ago, some of them have now matured enough to realize that, in their sincere efforts not to give… Read more
I “seem to be saying that I’d be fine with a white person doing a dramatization of what happened to members of my family”? That assumption is entirely yours, but thanks for proving my point, which was in fact that I couldn’t possibly care less about the ethnicity of the writer.

I once figured out where I was in San Francisco - a city I like very much, but have very seldom visited - via having virtually flown over it so many times while playing the alien invasion video game “Destroy All Humans 2". It’s a silly game, but the stylized game map was accurate enough that I was able to triangulate… Read more
Just to be clear, I didn’t make the video. I always appreciate a good Omen reference, though.
I was once staying in Bellingen, a lovely little river town in Australia, and my first evening there I looked up into the sky and noticed a huge flock of birds passing overhead. Then I saw one of them literally silhouetted against the moon and realized that they were bats. Tens of thousands of really big bats.
