So, I wrote a guest post for the Qwillery’s Debut Author Challenge, and it’s called Gynoid Trouble:
The heroine’s journey is the transition from object to subject. More specifically, the gynoid heroine’s journey is the transition between “automaton” to “autonomous”. From a piece of consumer technology to one who can never be owned. As Rei Ayanami says, “Wastashi wa anatta no ningyo ja nai; watashi wa anatta ja nai mono.” I am not your puppet; I am not your thing.
Yeah. It’s like that. People seem to be enjoying it.
