The Forgetting Navigations - One

Published Jun 12, 2021 · 3,696 words (14 minutes) · 2 likes · 223 views

Science Fiction Women Books space tea

The Forgetting Navigations is a novella I wrote in 2018. I have attempted to sell it and had no luck. I want it to be read, so I'm posting it here in 4-6 parts. This story gnawed at me until I wrote it, the way that every trauma gnaws at you. The way you gnaw at yourself. It's a bow to every older woman who can teach you how to live without gnawing, 'cause she's learned how. It's a song to friendship and how it can give you something to tether you to life.

Satire Science Fiction reading writing Teenagers education teaching Books high school

People outside of education have no idea what schools are like in the present era of standardized testing, teacher "accountability," and externally applied curriculums and measurements. It's a messy, intrusive, complicated, bureaucratic world where teachers and students try to survive its most dehumanizing aspects. If trends continues, schools like the one in "Pirate Readers" are just around the corner.

An old college buddy contacts Allan to visit the “strange edifice of my rock house home,” as he put it, and to “salve my maladies and afflictions.” Intrigued and troubled, Allan takes up the invitation. What happens after is a deep dive into literature, obsession, and a desire for permanence.
