Jarn’s Journal is the fictional journal of an alien stranded in Africa 125,000 years ago. He is being hailed as a god by the human ancestors he has discovered. His story is the remote background of the Jarnian Confederacy, the setting of my science fiction novels. The Journal to date is on my author website. A slightly longer version of this entry is on my main blog.
The equinox is close, if not here. The grass is shriveling, though not yet as brown as when I arrived – that must have been a drier than normal year. Plant food is harder to find, and some of the animals are leaving. Already the shaman has asked me if I will go with them to the Gather. I wasn’t trying to read her mind, but I couldn’t help picking up what a coup it would be for her group to be accompanied by a god.
I am not a god! Why can’t I get that across?
Besides, I don’t think I can keep up with them.
They will be walking. The longest distance I’ve walked, since that first disastrous day, is from here to the camp.
Yipes, just realized I forgot to put in the link to other authors on SFF Saturday!
