I have started the ninth chapter of my space opera story and things are starting to pick up. An army is being recruited, a fleet is being assembled, and a city is being fortified. Overall, this chapter will give you a little glimpse of the weapons and warships the defenders will deploy as they defend a strategically important star system. It is going to be so much fun to write as the story progresses. Later in the story, I will be depicting two epic battles: one fought in space and one fought on the planet’s surface. The outcome of one of these battles will decide the outcome of the entire campaign. It is going to be fantastic and epic!
