Time travel / Science Fiction writers (can't find thread) September 5, 2014 12:16 PM   Subscribe

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask, I tried MetaChat, too, but there was a thread I now can't find, it was about science fiction writers and the problem with writing from a place of omniscience when writing this time of science fiction. Anyone know what I'm talking about. I wanted to read it during lunch, can't find it!

Hi MoxieProxy! Today is September 5, 2014 C.E. (Gregorian calendar). The thread you're looking for was posted yesterday, not today, but you were really close! Did you remember to adjust your apparatus for axial precession?

Yes! Thank you very much!

Ha. Yeah, maybe it is, if you are forced to travel chronically through time.

I would suggest laying off the chronic if you time travel. It's trippy enough without the buzz.

I would like to time travel and fix that egregious typo. Please.

No, good typo. I know all too well what it is to travel chronically. All too well
