Working on capturing Alan Turing’s voice

Enigmatic Patterns will be a first person comic, with a running narrative of Alan Turing’s thoughts. I’m practicing my voice by writing a novella attempting to capture Alan’s unique voice. He was a prolific writer of papers and letters, and I’ve read quite a few, but that doesn’t make it easier. I find it makes it harder. His voice is out there already, and I’m chasing it down.

I’ve successfully completed the 3-Day Novel Contest before, and found it a thrilling experiment in immersive writing, so I’m attempting it again this year. I’m sure parts will end up in the final script, but I’m almost more interested in the parts that won’t. The details and characterizations and verbal tones that emerge from this exercise but will be mine alone.

I’ll be posting snippets, I’m sure, but for the most part, this is an experiment for myself as I attempt to channel Alan Turing’s humor, curiosity, rationality, and wry detachment.
