The Stranger Fleet
Writing Lessons #1
When writing a story with a lot of named characters do not give secondary characters similar names. The Rangers on The Arrogant Lion are named Fenuchi and Fundowkoski. (Holiday and Verde as well, but they are easier to differentiate.)
The Engineering Tech is named Flavius.
This has lead to some confusion on my part and I am sure I have used Flavius and Fenuchi somewhat interchangeably even though Flavius is clearly the Engineer and Fenuchi has the additional task of being the ship’s medic.
Sorry for any confusion when reading the book.
Item: Item 24
First Mention: Primary Collision
First Appearance: Primary Collision
Description: The 24th item on a checklist Admiral Bashir has developed to chart when his plans will be initiated to begin a covert unauthorized action involving the Stranger Fleet. No New Fleet Personnel are involved in this plan and great lengths have been taken to keep the plan a secret.
Writing Origin: Just a random number at first, but slowly built up items on the list as I was writing the book Primary Collision.
