I’m still working on Stone Blade #6 but I reached a point where I had to take a break. So, as usual, I turned to Java. I also accomplished something REALLY COOL that I’ve been working on a while. Globe-map graph paper! The image above is a PNG version of just the graph grid and I reduced it in size, but you get the idea.
Longitude and latitude are, by default, just like a regular printed globe: curved (arcs) and straight (lines) respectively. The generator allows this to be customized, though! You can change the number of divisions either way and make both (or NEITHER) scale(s) curved or straight! Needless to say I am VERY proud of this.
For those interested in my software or books:

I’m also thinking about writing a series of posts about, well, writing. Both writing in general and science fiction in particular. These are a few things I’ve gathered along my journey. Any feedback on this will be greatly appreciated.
Ciao for now;
