The Forgetting Navigations Chapter One

Published Mar 5, 2021 · 1,006 words (4 minutes) · 97 views

Science Fiction spaceship space Women trauma Books

The Forgetting Navigations is a serialised novella being released on Patreon. This story gnawed at me until I wrote it, the way that every trauma adds to that thing inside you that holds them, and gnaws at you too. The way you gnaw at yourself. It's a love letter, or a bow to every older woman who can teach you how to live without gnawing, 'cause she's fought a hard-won battle to learn how. It's a song to friendship and how it can give you something to tie yourself to. To stay tethered to life.
