for Friday Fictioneers – January 31, 2014
He heads to the room in the attic. This is where it happens, where it all occurs. Everything needed is there, at the ready. A factory for making. The tools and materials – this is where the work gets done. Such a tiny place – 53 cm of circular feedback. Yet somehow within it expands. Almost limitlessly, it seems. Whatever is needed appears, is created, invented – “on the spot” manufacturing “just in time.” Manufabulating. Manuscripting. You can almost make out all the details – electricity, wiring, elaborate connections – the inside, the outside, and back – and yet how it gets done is quite hazy.

What a creative take on the picture! If only we had this in real life.
the 53 cm workshop – the average circumference of an adult human head – so we do?
What a unique way of describing the creative (or other) process! I particularly like “manufabulating.”
A unique story for sure.
Brilliant take on the prompt.
This is a very creative story. Makes me wonder if he’s related to Harry Potter or Dr. Who. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to come across something which is much bigger on the inside than on the outside. It makes for a lot of story possibilities.
thanks so much
inventive use of the prompt! I like it.
Read and reread it. Not sure. Is it a computer? The brain?
i intended the brain…but like the computer application as well! Thanks
53 cm? Glad you explained it. Now that puts the whole piece into perspective. Nicely done. Bravo!
What a creative take-loved it:-)
thank you Rochelle
love this picture, and the way your words expand it.
I particularly like the “quite hazy” line.
Really interesting – if it’s a brain – this is neat! Cool.
