Wednesday July 3, 2013 Opening of work in progress; first draft or zero draft:

"Of course you're a witch. You're an atheist, aren't you?" Miranda Afterland smiled, to show she didn't really believe that superstition.

Chane Mardon shook his head. "I'm an agnostic. I neither believe or disbelieve in any gods."

"That's even better! Someone who doesn't even believe in atheism must have really powerful magic. Look; all you have to do is give obscure answers to questions about the future. I'll interpret what you say. And we both get paid."

***Shopped at the Wedge and Steeple People Thrift Store. Picked up prescription meds at HealthPartners Riverside.

Bad news: you probably won't be able to be revived from the NSA's records of you.

Which sparked a story idea I probably won't use. Given sufficiently advanced technology, it would be possible to reconstruct someone from surveillance records. ("Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Arthur C. Clarke.)

My reaction might be different if I had more context, but just that snippet of conversation pings my "this is a scammer and someone not to be trusted" button very hard. If I were Chane, I'd walk away right then and there.
