To Scifi or not Scifi

A couple of weeks back I had an idea for a scifi story, about an ordinary guy working in a garage fixing cars. He's based in a technological society not so very different from ours, but where the self-driving car has become normal, everything is connected and mankind is still wondering what's next.

What's the story then?

Well, he's just an ordinary guy, knows about cars, happy to fix them, but he's shy, not otherwised inclined to tech and finds the lives of those arpound him bizarre as he keeps his head down and just does his job. There would be little cameos of customers and situations that arise from the vehicles he fixes. There could be snatches of home life, a wife & small, puzzling people that seem to share the house with them, but he really lives in his own world most of the time, observing life through a half-open garage door.

Artemis Hearthroug.

It would not be a 'Christian' book.

Will it happen? Probably not, though it's a nice idea. I've heard that everyone has a book inside them, but these days too many of them are getting out and being published when they should have been left out of sight. There's more than enough rubbish in virtual print already.

But you never know.
