I wrote the short story “Think Before Meddling With Archangels “ (how I wish I’d thought to shorten that title earlier!) as a completion of the initial scene Angels and Clay Blobs that I started back in 2012, and finally posted in 2014. In between these two versions, I went through a couple of earlier (one with a name I liked, but feared might catch some flack, so changed it…) versions before finally posting TBMWA, which was my first, and so far only, entry for a story contest, this one based on rational decision-making narrative.
The initial scene of Angels and Clay Blobs actually kicked off my very first NaNo novel, Creator: Friend or Foe, which, after 7 drafts, will die a quiet death like every first practice novel. Hubris and Hemlock, my second NaNo novel, is actually deserving of the title, having a plot!
I look forward to your thoughts on the writing process.
1.) What are your thoughts on using story to build new tools for our society?
2.) Share your thoughts on how this idea may help, or hinder, inclusive thinking.
4.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses those thoughts.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
