Well, hugely behind schedule but novel two is finished.
I enjoyed this a lot. The style of the first-person narrative is great. It comes across at first as pretty bleak but in thinking about it I think the message of the novel is a hugely positive one and I can’t help but find myself agreeing with the protagonist even if my world view isn’t quite as heavily absurdist. Which is probably the point.
“Brief summary of the above: “I do not understand science and feel vaguely intimidated by it. Rather than attempt to rectify this, I justify my intimidation by claiming that science is somehow dangerous or immoral in extremely vague and non-specific ways. Since I am incapable of understanding scientific explanations, I disapprove when science explains something that had previously been mystical, as I can no longer spout nonsense about it without being contradicted.”

Day 7: Wahoog, it’s been a week. In this one I wanted to elaborate on an idea I love to hear- when phrases of 3/4 are set against 4/4 so they match up every 12 bars. I wanted to explore this more but I got distracted by how much fun I was having just improvising on guitar, so I recorded one take of that for good measure.
