The word makes me think of a space platform.

I imagine a writer perched on a wooden square suspended in space, galaxies and nebulae whirling about it.  And whenever I get brave enough to peer over the edge, I gaze into the accretion disk of a supermassive black hole.  Despite there not being sound in space (or wooden platforms for that matter), it would roar like a vast ocean.

This is the writerly platform for me, Nancy Chenier, often writing under N. E. Chenier to differentiate me from an already-established academic sharing my name.  Plus, I’ve always enjoyed the wordplay my first two initials give to any surname.  As per the title, I’m all about spec-fic, everything from sic-fi to fantasy to slipstream to whatever may be coming next.

  1. Just read your story on IU and had to find the source. 🙂
    Chris James and I are sci-fi writers too, although in very different areas. It’s great to meet another sci-fi bod – there aren’t that many of us around.


  2. Howdy! I’m glad something came out of it.
    Are you in this week’s IU contest? I didn’t see Chris James up there either. I’ll certainly look out for both of you.


  3. hey, thank you for the follow; great flash you created there. Big worlds in small spaces. Excellent.
