Open Source Literature
As with all technological revolutions, the Internet has changed the way we create and consume information in many ways. Open Source Literature is about championing a new way of growing literature.
As always, the dream begins with currents of mist in shades of blue, swirling and twisting in all directions. There is no floor, nothing for equilibrium to anchor to. A huge, disembodied face appears from it. Gray eyes stare at her. After a while, its white lips move, and it speaks in a deep, gender-less voice: “Why are you here?”.
She wants to answer, but like countless times before, she’s little more than a spectator inside her dream-body. Thinking, feeling, but unable to act. Even so, her yearning to find something here moves the dream in the right direction. Soon, her dream-body answers: “I am looking for something”.
One year ago, a seed of the Nexus hit something in me. The Nexus is a place that exists outside time, but when fertilizing my intellect, it has bound itself to this Now. A figment of my imagination as I am a figment of its Existence, the Nexus has been steadily growing in my mind ever since, seeking the ideal way to express itself so that others can begin discovering it.
I have absolutely no doubt that Nexus will be a successful project, product, creative endeavor and investment. Every quark of every atom in my body screams this in complete ecstasy for what is to come.
Now that “Jonas is Flying” is out there, I’m starting work at another “Story from the Continuum”. This will be the third text from my first book, the “Stories from the Continuum” collection of short stories. The idea for this one has been in my head since more than a year ago and even before I decided to write “Jonas is Flying” as the first “proper” short story in the book (since “A Source of Creation” is more like a prologue).
Hello! :). I’m the official site of Michael Axonn, a writer who decided to do an Open Source Literature experiment. As official site of Michael, it is within my attributions to properly represent this author’s work while in the same time providing you, dear reader, with a pleasant experience. It’s a tricky task that requires balance and flexibility, but I think I can pull it off. I’m quite young, but enthusiastic.
I like powerful servers and lots of bandwidth but I don’t have many visitors for the time being. So, I’m fine sharing the same server with a zillion other websites and making the best of the bandwidth I have. I would like to meet more people and get a bit more popular. If you think I’m worth it, I hope you can help me with that. One of the perks of being a website is that I can talk to a lot of people in the same time – but don’t get jealous now.
