DISCUSSION THREAD -- FEBRUARY 2023 -- 75 Word Writing Challenge

Rarely am I in so early but I was on the bus home and I've had sci-fi stuff on the brain recently so it just bubbled out there are then. Hopefully that's a good sign!
Ah, me and robots (or androids) the last year or so, *sigh*.

Great choices, Ashleyne. Just for me, I find a wide-open genre (like this) where my imagination decides which sub-genre it will create in works best.

I've enjoyed all the stories so far, good luck to those yet to enter, CC

D'oh, just posted another map story @BigJ -in my defense I had it scribbled on a bit of paper and only just logged online ...so it was coincidence it landed in just after your intergalactic cartographic tale ;)
War Never Changes by @BigJ .... This story just made me sigh with frustration.

If in doubt, wipe it out by @AnRoinnUltra .... This story altered my view of what constituted waste.
@therapist .... Jason’s Roadside Petrol Station .... This story left me with a visual, but not one I want to dwell on.
