This is a love story.

I know what you'll say; our kind doesn't write those. It's not that we're incapable of feeling love, as a few will tell you. It's that we usually restrain that impulse that leads most people to write sonnets, songs, or long tear-stained letters; they're a waste of our time, because the feeling is understood and silently acknowledged. We write our papers instead. The science we come up with is new; romance is not.

But I never said this was a romance.

How is your novel going? Any deep insights on how you manage to balance an Olin career with 1667 words of fiction springing from your head every day? Are you going to share it with people when you're done? I'm really interested with how it will turn out.

Hopefully I'll keep posting it here - actually, it's about time for that second spurt. 30 minute timer, GO!
