      My dad passed just a couple of years ago, so I can totally empathize.

      Thanks man. I really appreciate your taking a bit of time to answer my questions. I think you've really nailed that "Trek" vibe with the Fortitude stories.

      How does one change their name on TrekBBS? I would like to change it from admiralelm11 to something else, please.

      Also, how much world-building did you do before starting to write, or did you just dive in? Thanks in advance for your time! Still loving the stories.. I think one of the best parts is that I could easily see this on TV.

        I just dove right in. I don't necessarily have a plan when it comes to the episodes. However, for the series, I have five seasons planned in all with a final story that could be attributed to a major motion picture movie... if all of this ever made it to television and the movies. LOL

        I guess family would be a word I would put to this series. Originally, when I started it, I dedicated it to my dad, who passed away near the end of January. Writing this series helped me cope with all of it and I started adding little tidbits in the stories like the recent two-parter when I added Snohomish. An aunt of mine used to live there and Snohomish has a river in my home state so I said, why not?

        All I guess I can say is practice makes perfect. I've been writing since I was in high school and I feel like with each story, I get better at my craft. I hope this helps with your own writing. I like your stories by the way. :)

      If you've a moment to spare (no hurry) I'd love to find out about your writing method. The Fortitude stories have a cohesion that my writing seems to lack; how do you plan each episode, and do you have an overall plan for the series?

      I'm working on Episode 3.9 of Star Trek: Fortitude. Jason's parents come to visit.

      Latest entry was most excellent! I'm glad to see Valerie is still around, though I have to admit to being curious if you considered keeping her dead. Might make for a good "alternate timeline" story. Thanks for the Fortitude stories by the by, they're really good and a high point of my day when a new one comes out.

      No worries! Probably a story challenge entry.

      I thought about your post, and it inspired me to make a couple of tweaks and add a couple things. Please give it another read and let me know what you think!

        I haven't seen this until now? Which post was it? I'm sorry for this long silence.
