Short story week is here, so head on over to CyberKitty 2.1 to get started, or read on for some behind the scenes (and more cat photos. Perfect excuse, really).
I obviously have cats and world domination on the brain at the moment. This is a story I’ve been thinking about writing since my Sci-Fi for Beginners post, when I mentioned cybercats and got myself intrigued. I even had a go at writing it previously, but it didn’t come out right (this is starting to sound like a rather familiar theme. Sometimes I do write them just once and it works. Honest. Well, after a lot of editing, obviously).
But then the SO and I had one of our odd discussions about what would happen if cats did achieve world domination, and how humans would be treated by our furry little overladies and overlords. I wondered how it all might start, and I thought that, as with most things, it would start with something very small.
A complaint letter, perhaps.
And so world domination and cybercats got all a little muddled together, and I wrote something that is very much not in my normal style (other than that fact that it involves cats. Yeah, I know that’s very much my thing).
