My entry is
I got the idea for this while reading a book on World War II (
by Martin Gilbert - that's where the Churchill quote came from). Then I tried to make it as outrageous as possible.
Questions for readers:
Was alternating between the "log entry" and third person storytelling effective?
Did I make it too confusing? Obviously I wanted obscure but I might have gone too far.
What is an ideal length for an entry like this? I'm not the most verbose writer here, but my goal is to keep it short and simple. I think this is the longest one I have posted so far.
I am naming the runabouts after lesser-known scientists (Linus Pauling and Max von Laue so far). Does anyone have a good recommendation for the third and final runabout on the Odyssey? Everybody has a shuttlecraft named Einstein or Hawking so please don't go there.
