I know, I'm jealous. My scene seems quite mundane in comparison to what I am reading here. ;)

Hi all,

Some questions emerged in my absence:

- yup it's zero gravity
- yup they don't need spacesuits indoors
- It's just the 5 man crew (the crew list is complete)

The end draws nigh! I have just started the final scene of my chapter, and now that I have got into the swing of things, I am really enjoying it. It would never have crossed my mind to write about a space mission, and I feel new creative vistas expanding before me... :-)

PMs may not be getting through but, yes, I've got min, yes, the sleazy transvestite ballet dancer has found the key to the secret compartment in the vintage Lagonda, yes, they've slept together and, yes, the guy is playing Debussy's Poissons d'Or right now. The rainstorm will start shortly, the yacht is heading for the Mysterious Island and the evil fundamentalists have captured the mad organist AND his portable dentist's kit. So we're pretty much on track.

Going offline now.

I'm going for a wander around the park behind my house and ponder. After that there will be writing!

Chapter done. Sleep much needed before a proofread in the morning.

Argh! I just checked submission time: I thought it was 8am local time, but it's 6!! What kind of sadistic monster sets a 6am submission time?

Quick question for those in the know...

Have you used voice communications between the ground crew and the cabin crew, and do you have it going both ways? Or do you just have one-way communication?

MATT: for most of the mission there is no communication - the link went down pretty early in the mission. At least, that's what the crew thinks.
