Ironing Out a Character

Name: John Everyman

Age: 37 Earth years.

Setting: A Strategy to Establishing Your Foundation

Meagan sits in a worn maroon chair with wooden armrests, opening her laptop. The chair rests to the right of the front doors – three of them, one after the other – two wooden and one screen, each keeping the last of the sticky summer heat inside the creative writing house.

La Nuit Des Chimeres

Le Mans puts on a show called, La Nuit Des Chimeres from July until September. It is a light show which uses projection mapping on the historical landmarks of Le Mans to tell the story of the chimera.
