30 Days of Writing: Day #28 – Disabilities ( #amwriting )

28. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there’s nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.

In Weordan, there are the facere who are pretty firmly on the autistic end of the thought spectrum. They are a linchpin in the fuel eater society. I have a minor character in Model Species that is a facere and a major character, Ysenof, in Fuel Eaters. (This assumes that one considers autism spectrum disorders to be disabilities. Where one falls on the spectrum might be the difference between "difference" and "disability," I suppose.)


It’s the end of September, but it doesn’t feel like the end of September. The temps haven’t significantly dipped below 100. I have Halloween decorations up, but my candles are melting. And my orange marshmallow pumpkins too.

Played a decent game of disc today. Nearly half the players were from my league team, including Paul, one of our new guys. Fun. Sweaty fun since it was probably in the high 90s, but still some good play.

The current scene of Luck for Hire would work better if I actually…uh…wrote it. Tomorrow I take a look at the third quarter.
