#Introduction Hi everyone!
My name is Sylvia. I'm a Belgian philosopher of science 🦉 🔬. I like thinking about infinitesimal probabilities & paradoxes.
Moved here from email@example.com.
I read quite a bit of #sciencefiction and have even had a couple of ideas but never got round to executing them 😕
Most of my work is nonfiction, which is weird because I always thought I'd end up writing fiction. I'd love to read some of your sci-fi if you're willing! 👀
Your last sentence could also describe me! I studied physics with the plan to become a #sciencefiction writer, but knowing the details made it harder to speculate. 😖
My first flash story only got published last year: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-02765-3 I've now 2 flash stories submitted (1 more mythological). I can send you a link to my next draft. Please feel free to do the same if you start writing on your ideas. 🛋️
I didn't know Nature published fiction! (Actually, I kinda did see once, but had forgotten). That's pretty cool, and you got a DOI and all! 😮
It didn't strike me that knowing details would make it harder to speculate! Makes sense though 🤐
We do seem to be picture thinkers! I visualise a lot of things, including math fractions and stuff so sounds about right! 👁️🗨️
@badri Thank you for sharing this story! It was such a good reading experience. I did NOT see that ending coming. Indeed, the intermediate scenes kept me guessing, like a good whodunit, and I guessed wrong until the very end. 💔
The whole Snipette website is a beautiful project and I'm glad to know it exists. 🤩
@SylviaFysica thank you so much! 😊
I'm very happy to hear the whodunit-ness worked! This story actually came to me in the middle of the night, and then I woke up in the morning and *had* to write it. And then it made me 💔 when I finished and read it! I hope it also drives home to people the impact of plastic pollution; it certainly did to me ♻️
And thank you about Snipette too! I'm proud of it and it makes me happy when people find it meaningful 😌
