I had a long winded post here about how much of a techie I am, but I was reminded by an IT teacher that there are millions of people in the IT world that say they know everything about computers, and that their actual skill/knowledge is inversely proportional to how how much they brag. So, I'm newly humble. I do have a love of learning, and will forever be a student of IT.

comment Incorporating Military Experience into Fantasy Writing?
I dipped into it a little, but others have had far more experience. The whole experience of the military could have been more involved and intense, but most of it was "hurry up and wait" and a plethora of mind games. It was still shocking enough to warrant PTSD, but I still feel my experience is somewhat lacking, particularly in leading others.

Yes, but I remember something about Tolkien being upset and denying any LOTR relation to WWII.

comment Incorporating Military Experience into Fantasy Writing?
Ok, so let me elaborate on what it is I'm trying to do here. In my stories, I have created "Necros" the demon-machine army. In one of the stories, two characters are told to infiltrate Necros and steal an artifact. I don't have much Black-Op experience, but I understand the mentality, having gone through it once. I can relate and embellish experiences in entering the military and daily life in the fleet. So, ok, I can accept that I won't find any inspiration help here. But, I could use help with my writing technique pertaining to military fantasy. Should I cite something from my book?
