Well, my back is still giving me grief from twisting it Saturday night. Getting through work was a challenge. The chair was not well designed for someone with a long torso — like myself – and by the end of the day I was hurting fairly smartly.
I did not let it keep me away from Cawdor though. Tonight I started in on worldbuilding and notes about the Grand Unified Compact. I also have started putting out feelers for military assistance. I hoping not to be one of those military SF writers who makes really dumb blunders in military matters. I know quite a bit about the Navy and what that is like. I know very little about ground forces, how they are organized and utilized in combat. Hopefully I can find the right advise and make something that reads well is exciting and is believable.
