Observation: This is Wall Street

On the train two women trade verbal insults.

“…You people don’t even know how to act on the train!”

“It took you ten fuckin’ minutes to get your fat fuckin’ ass off the train but I’m fine. I’m relaxed. You got issues.”

“I don’t have issues.”

“You’re the big fat ass. I’d beat that fuckin’ ass all night.”

“You should be glad you’re not like me.”

“I’m relaxed. I’m fine. I’m OK. You’ve got issues…”

Just another day in NYC.

Y! The Last Man – Volume 6

Here’s Yorick, Dr. Mann and 355 on their way to Australia, a side trip as they cross the ocean in search of Ampersand, who was kidnapped in San Francisco. Ampersand, Yorick’s capuchin helper monkey, holds the key to Yorick’s immunity from the plague that killed all Y-chromosome containing mammals.

More than a few people in Girl on Girl get some action.
More than a few people in Girl on Girl get some action.

There’s a fair amount of drama on the ship: Dr. Mann and 355 have a romantic rendez-vous. Yorick and the ship’s captain come close. And the Australian Navy adds to the tension since The Whale may be smuggling elicit goods.

Highly recommended as the middle of the series.

Observation

(It had been a week of deaths – friends, friends of friends, a PS29 student. Heavy stuff.)

As we walk into Prospect Park, we see an ambulance on West Drive, coming in from Ninth Stret. When we reach the road, we see a crowd has gathered and a pair of police cars, lights spinning. As we pass, we see a man on his back being given chest compressions. As we walk down the hill, Kristen starts to weep. We stop.

Why I Started Writing This Site

I’ve been writing professionally for 12 years, writing fiction and screenplays on-off for 18, and keeping a journal for 22 years.

I love writing and started writing this blog for three reasons:

1. I wanted to collect the writing I publish elsewhere.

2. I want to comment on developments in biotechnology and the emerging field of synthetic biology.

3. I would like to help scientists tell their stories.

I am a huge believer in storytelling and the written word’s power to translate big ideas.

I want to connect with you and show you how I write and help my clients tell their science stories.

So please read, share, contact me and come back soon.
