“I like the way this paints a vivid picture of an entire world that’s just barely sketched in around the edges of this moment.” — @Domestinatrix (Twitter) about my story Automatic Selection on DailyScienceFiction.com.
I’ve never been a big fan of setting. I don’t like reading it, I don’t like writing more than the bare minimum of it.
At just over 750 words, this story didn’t have room for much – and what is in there was mostly added in editing.
Looks like I got it right.
