It's been five years since I last posted on these forums, and it's eye opening to read excerpts I'd posted back then. I feel much better about how I write now haha. The Force Awakens managed to resurrect my desire to tell a science fiction story I picked up where I'd left off, but eventually decided to scrap what I had written and just start from a fresh angle while still using the premise of the existing work. I've been frequenting the Writing sub-reddit for the last few months, so I'm looking forward to also learning a thing or two here again as well. So, hello again! I picked up a copy of Scrivener recently and love it. Such a great tool and has really made sense of the whole project. I'm up to 22 pages (7,000 words) and I'd love to create a novel sized story. It's a great challenge, but it's so worth it. A little excerpt from a chapter I've just started working on. It's one of the first milestones in the plot.
