There's a quaint Japanese store not too far down the street from where I live. I must admit I love going there. They have all sorts of high-end knick knacks from Nippon there, including a small assortment of quality pens. I knew as soon as I saw the Delfonics pen on display in a fancy case I just had to have it.
I'm a big proponent of Japanese-made pens when it comes to drawing, but I never have had the pleasure of using a Delfonics product. My first impression is all good. The pen handles so easily, and is very light. The ball point smoothly rolls across paper. The ink output is consistent and very little pressure need be applied.
I'm inspired to hit the sketchbook now, so let me put this blog down and get working on the next strange Frank Bruce piece of art...
I'm trying to pen a super short story in which a crew of a starship has to orbit a neutron star. Now from what I've gleaned off of the World Wide Web, those things are dangerous.
But still, why not orbit one anyways?
Consequently I sent a question to a kinda famous and young physicist on Facebook asking about orbiting neutron stars, and time dilation, et cetera. The physicist must be busy because she hasn't responded to my query as of yet (LOL) but now I'm stuck.
I don't mind writing stories that violate some of the known laws of physics but I want to respect anyone that's will to take the time to read my scribblings. I really sorta kinda wanna nail the physics in the story.
There's more than one way to skin a cat. I suppose I'll Facebook some other physicists, but maybe ones that are slightly less known. Maybe I'll get an answer...?
