Year 2, Day 201
Flying turns out to be much easier than levitating and then teleporting to a landmark I can see. I just have to levitate to the height I want, set up levitation struts to keep me there, and then push backward on the ground. Memorized teleports at altitude work, too, but for exploration flying is wonderful. And I’ve found the perfect way to counterbalance!
I have been following the little stream that runs by my shelter. It almost disappears during the dry season, but it’s not hard to trace. It flows into another, and then another, and a few days’ flying downstream I would have to call it a river. Rather slow and broad at this season, but it is apparent that it runs far faster and fuller during the rainy season.
Near the end of the third day I thought I saw smoke rising, and at first I thought I was seeing another fire. It’s been getting pretty dry, and for a moment I almost teleported back to the shelter. What if fire was there, too?
What did Jarn really see? A longer version of this post is on my main blog.
And exciting news! I entered Tourist Trap in the Reader Views Literary Awards contest for self-published and small press books. Not only did it get first place in science fiction, it was awarded best fiction book of the year!
