@Just Jim Sins of a Solar Empire? Redemption? I think...

I have not played that in ages....

Rebellion! Very good!
This will be the only time i use it here, but I used to play this a lot, before i found KSP, and I've always kept it in the back of my head to maybe use it here someday to portray the ancient "Kraken War".

I'm not subscribed to the thread on purpose since there's so much talking happening between the chapters. I'd get notified of every new post and I don't want that.

I totally understand that. This is why I change the title of the thread with each chapter. That way anyone who is not subscribed should still be able to see fairly quick when there's a new one ready..

@DualDesertEagle There’s actually not much going on in this thread... poor Emiko

Don't worry... I got some done this weekend...

I can't work 7 days a week... ;)

@Just Jim How's your work at SQUAD going?

Or is it all under NDA?

Looking forward to the next chapter as always :)

I can't talk specifics, obviously. but I don't think it violates anything saying I really love it... 
I am working with some of the greatest people, ever!  :D

Well, I can't deny this was the one time in my life I was actually in the right place at the right time... and I got really, really lucky.

But my understanding is more and more companies are moving to this kind of thing, where many of the people work from home. So while you might never work for KSP,  odds are getting better everyday you still might end up with this kind of job sometime in the future. ;)

Yup, and that's what I am hoping for... Who knows, maybe I will finish the novel I am working on and just become a writer.

From what I've read of what you've written, I don't think you'll have much trouble getting anything published if you do finish it...

I agree!
In fact, there are several really great authors on here.

:blush: I am humbled by both of your opinions of my writing. Thank you both!

@Mrcarrot, had it not been for @Just Jim's encouragement, I would never have started fan-fic writing here. If there's anyone who deserves credit for helping me get started...it is definitely him!

I did get an invitation from KSP to join their testing group.

But there was no payment involved, so I declined.

Not that I don't mind helping out, but I'm not signing a legal contract for peanuts.

That's what the acknowledgements page of the novel is for.

Or, if you're very impressed, the dedication.

 

...

 

Personally, I'd go for the dedication.

 

 

Anyway, somewhat more on topic, how's the chapter thus far, @Just Jim?  Not by any means to insinuate that the writing is my first concern, but is the hurricane season threatening to blow you straight to Oz again?

Nope. Two separate things. The novel I've been working on was started before I began fan fic writing using KSP as a backdrop. @Just Jim was the one who encouraged me to step into the realm of fan fic!

The novel is NOT related to KSP.

Well....

Something I have not told anyone on here...  maybe it's time.

I joined that same group way back in February... I was super honored to do anything, even volunteer, I gladly said yes!!!

And I stayed with them until the job became available a few months later... and when it did, I jumped on it.

Like I said earlier, I was in the right place at the right time...  ;)

Well, honestly, at the time I had no clue the job was going to happen, and I don't want to give the impression that one automatically leads to the other.
But it was really fun, and gave me a chance to really learn a lot. I don't think I can any more than that... ;)

This afternoon got a little weird (real life crap) but I'm going to work on it tomorrow. And so far we've had our normal rainy season, but the hurricane hit far north of here. Fingers crossed we don't get any more this year... anywhere.

You ok after Michael went through? (yes, I know, off-topic... supposedly.  except I think checking to make sure the author is ok is on topic)

I'm sorry, I should have written something. I've just been super busy. Thank you for asking!

I'm down near Tampa, and we only got the edge of it, luckily. It got dark and gloomy and windy... It was weird, you could feel that it was really close, but it didn't get too bad, nothing like last year. I just feel bad for the folks up north, they got hammered.
