From my reams of F&C novel notes:
“Consider: The universe is a mathematical construct that is ultimately definable, vs. It’s possible for something to be greater than the sum of its parts. Also: The ideas of a micro-universe without mass, and non-deity-based spontaneous creation.”
I’m starting to think it might be genetically impossible for me to come up with a simple story idea.
On the more mundane domestic front, I have to say that having the plumbers over five times in one month is a bit much. On the up side, our shower is no longer limited to scalding us with a thin trickle of blazing hot water. Hooray for the return to refreshing cold showers on a wiltingly hot day.
