comment Potential confusion: referring to home planet as “Earth”
Thanks Craig. I used one of the Latin words for "new" to name this newly discovered planet. I may expand a little more on their relation. Solum is the word for "ground", "land", "earth" even. For the colonisers, it's significant, and maybe I should briefly explain why it was called Solum, (in reverance to Earth).

They have lobster :) P.S. Can you guess where the name comes from?

comment Potential confusion: referring to home planet as “Earth”
Thanks. I think the general idea with how I'm setting up my "future" is that the humans still have a natural tie to their original planet, even if most don't ever visit it. Perhaps the issues we face today had been overcome and it's now a intergalactic "core" planet. But as far as naming this New Earth goes, I've been convinced to go with what is in my updated passage for now.

Thanks Dale. Usually when I go back I find these "info dumps" and try to see if I can fit them in like you said.

Well I decided some Latin wouldn't go down too bad and changed it "Solum". Fits a lot better.

Considering the possibly that it may at least be referenced or even travelled to (technological marvels not withstanding) you have a point. It may get messy.

I think the idea is valid, but the question is made like a discussion.

Xeno, this looks like a fantastic way to know the different experiences that your character could "write" about. What does he see, hear, smell and feel, and which combination of his experience should I then convey to the user. Thanks!

One could reference "KISS" in this.

comment How important is typing speed to a successful writing career?
I would rather like to touch type than get someone else to transcribe it. My 2c. P.S. I can touch type, I'm a programmer.
