About fifteen years ago I started writing a novel called “Crisis Team.”
It was about being a high school student abducted by a secret organization, and having super-powers. I made Gina read my latest drafts every week in health class.
The particular deux ex machina of the early bits of the novel was that the narrator (AKA me) discovered a super-powered, super-portable laptop that was wirelessly connected to the entire network of the super-secret organization.
Fifteen years later my internet handle is “krisis” and I am writing this post from the back of a SEPTA bus on my 10″ mini-laptop, now empowered with a mobile broadband connection that lets me post from anywhere in the city.
(1) I am now living in my imagined life; the only difference is that I am a rock star rather than a superhero.
(2) I have to get used to writing posts short enough that I won’t miss my stop.
