Since I’ve just finished the “final” (heavy emphasis on the quotes) revision of chapter 10, I thought that I’d post an excerpt from it. 1015 words, to be exact. This is the introduction to a secondary character, Shelagh. Comments are welcome, of course. In terms of forward momentum, I’m into the first draft of chapter 16. Things are going a bit slower as my characters are in a place where real world references aren’t as easy, but the creative hard science thought experiments are much more interesting. So what happens in a spacial dimension born of the same Big Bang but with with a lower gravitational constant? Stars form more slowly, thus other matter does, too. The Earth is a bit more primordial geologically. And so on.
