Most of the time I write stuff just so I can find out what I think. I wrote this and still don't know what I think, which is frustrating, but I posted it anyway, in the spirit of "show your work."
I get that internal combustion engines are bad and their days are numbered, but I remain unconvinced that everyone driving around on top of giant lithium batteries disguised as car underbodies is a better outcome environmentally.
I feel like that makes me a bit of a Luddite, which is a new place for me to be. Pynchon told me it's OK to be one. https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/books/97/05/18/reviews/pynchon-luddite.html
The obvious response here is “well, write one, then,” and if I weren’t so wrapped up in this manuscript right now maybe I’d try.
I’ve done a LOT of writing since I hit on my Mac Word 5 setup a few weeks ago. Only problem now is the carpal tunnel issues that have been slowly gaining on me for years are finally too obvious to ignore, I guess because of all the extra time I’m spending typing on top of my work days, and my crappy work from home desk setup.
On the bright side maybe I’ll get to buy another fancy ergo keyboard?
