Suesa's Science Stories - Masterpost #3

in fiction •  11 months ago


I think it’s time for another Masterpost! But this time with a twist:

At the bottom of this post, you’ll find the link to a poll where you can decide if you want a sequel to one of my stories - that includes stories that only ever got one part. Not all of them, it doesn’t always make sense.

I will try to post a “proper” post later today but I’m still recovering from the stress of the last 4 weeks. On the upside, the next 2 weeks are really chill!

Now, have fun discovering stories you might not have read yet - or might not remember.

I so wish I had your fast hands and creative side... This is so cool. I need to go back and read about cancer ones but for now I bow to your pen and it's ability to enchant my reading side :)

Wow. You're prolific! I wish my muse was this nice to me.


I have to say, it can be a bit draining sometimes to write so much. But the gratification I get from people's comments outweighs that usually.


Don't I know it! I have a list of short stories I want to write and have yet found the time to.

BTW, I really wanted your input on my latest piece, "off the grid", because it's inspired by an actual place and condition.


I'll have a closer look and give proper feedback! The past 4 weeks have been stressful and I haven't been able to pay attention to other people's content.


Don't you hate it when life gets in the way of what's really important, like writing and curating? :)


So much! :D

@suesa you have done a lot of work already, writing all of this good article & stories is really something that you should be proud of congrats and Respect (^_^)

I've enjoyed all the stories I have read from you, but Bullshit Science was something special to me. Maybe because I didn't need to worrt about what will happen AND they still were truly entertaining.


They were really fun to write too! I just don't have enough funny papers to write more parts for it.


This would mean we need some community work and we should look for studies which could be turned into a funny post!


I'd support that!


I'll look into this is it's possible on any level, so it's not just a nice thought :)

Nice post bro, I'm waiting for your support
