Day 274: In the distance, distance
Living ships are an old idea - even before scifi, from assigning a ship a name and personality to traveling in the belly of a whale, the idea of a ship being alive has some traction.
In my story, Escape Pod (no relation to the wonderful podcast) I take that idea of a living ship a bit further, and make a baby ship.
Spring and summer in the city are a time when you see a lot of infants being pushed around in strollers, or clinging to their parents necks. With friends both pregnant and hoping to soon be pregnant, I have infants on the brain. Any anything on my mind gets molded, one way or another, into a story.
