Mike's fiction writing MISSION is to have a blast integrating mind-blowing new technologies, discoveries, and movements into character-driven, dramatic stories. Mike aims to captivate, entertain, inspire, and provoke people to reflect on themselves and our world. In addition to science, technology, and culture, these stories explore issues related to relationships, religion, politics, law, business, entertainment, fashion, parenting, aging, and more. Mike curates a list of past singularitives and hypothetical future singularitives.
Mike's fiction writing MOTIVATION was inspired by the humanistic and entrepreneurship principles that the most compelling way to convey ideas and provoke thought is through storytelling, especially stories that emotionally move people.
Mike's fiction writing COLLABORATORS rally around the realization that, as with creating great companies, developing great stories is a team effort. This team effort includes beta readers, writers groups, and more. That's why the attribution / pen name for these stories is Singularitive Ranch—an organization name, not a single author name. Here's a list of our beta readers and other contributors to date.
Mike's writing APPROACH to developing stories is based on the same modern techniques that are used to develop software. For example, Mike builds stories using technology concepts such as platform architecture, wire-framing, agile development, minimum viable product / story, and Mike views the revisioning of story manuscripts as analogous to new internal releases of software apps. While Mike uses editing tools such as Grammarly and ProWriterAid, Mike has not, nor intends to use AI to write stories, narrate audiobooks, or produced marketing materials (such as back cover blurbs).
