The Story of WARP

The Story of WARP
A great man once said; never write about time travel or science fiction because you will tie yourself in knots and end up with nothing but a manuscript full of mistakes and a thumping headache. Sorry, did I say great man? I meant grate man as in a guy who fixed fireplaces. So I said to Mr Murphy who was fixing our fireplace: I will write what I like and what do you know about it? I don’t tell you how to fix fireplaces. Now take your urchin worker and get out of my 18th century mansion.
Ok. Maybe not that last bit.

I have to admit the grate man was right. Writing about time travel can be a real pain in the Microsoft Word. Most word processors have spellcheck for magic books, but they don’t have time check for time travel stories. You can really tie yourself in knots trying to untie quantum puzzles, like who’s dead, who’s alive, who belongs to what timeline. So why do it? Why not write a nice story about a badger who dreams of being an Olympic triathlete and leave it at that? Who doesn’t love a badger with a dream story, right?
