Nightmare Fuel, Day the Twenty-Second. Meeting Minutes.

The challenge with image-prompts is that sometimes they speak to me and sometimes they quite honestly don't. 

Today we'll back away from narrative and play with the idea of what a story is. I originally conceived this differently, and might return to a similar form at some point. 

Meeting Minutes

Date: -6 (tentative)

Z (observer)

  • Review of schedule
  • Verification of termination date
  • Demolition plan

    1. Mechanical/temporal advancement far surpassing spiritual advancement.
      1. No signs of this trend abating.
