100 DAYS PROJECT: #86

86cpuWell I stuck pretty faithfully to Steve’s concept of a world where what we are is what we’re expected to be and produce faithfully by a society slightly twisted by time.

I chose to work with a writer and named the bad guy as ‘the feds’ just because it happened that way. I was also able to draw a bit on my experience with daily deadlines and the push to produce, though fortunately, without the dire consequences that the protagonist faces should he fall short of standards.

There are several separate versions of story here, probably a dozen or so. Each story is very short, eight lexias tops I believe. And, there are two different endings based on your choice of path. I enjoyed writing this one. I kind of like how it came out.

    Oh dear God–are we doing 1000?!?!?

    Can’t deny that the experience influenced the story in parts. Only hope that neither of the two endings is in our future.
