But then there are those small moments when all the hard work seems to pays off. Today I found out that a chapter that I had written for a scientific Encyclopedia got published. Although I wrote it over a year ago it was still a buzz to see it in print.
One down side is that I can't remember if in the agreement I get a hard copy of it or not, because if I don't, it is retailing at between $1,500 and $1,700... ouch. Maybe I wont be seeing a copy of it after all!
As a side note, when I was working on this I also wrote a hypothetical piece on the physiological and psychological impact of Mordians living on a planet of perpetual darkness. If I find it I'll post it up one day.
It was also around that time that I postulated that 'Cadian' was derived from 'ca' - an abbreviation for circa, and 'diem' or 'dies' - meaning day. ...Because really no one expects a Cadian to live for more then a day? Nar, I've seen Drax's troops, it more likely refers to the fact that Cadia is attacked circa diem.
Anyho back to the real writing.....
