if you're writing a story set in space...
Looking for good, informative, resourceful research material for a story set in space? May I suggest to you... Chris Hadfield.
Hadfield is a retired Canadian Astronaut, engineer and fighter pilot who spent 166 days in space. His method of teaching will keep you watching into the earliest hours of the morning.
Linked below are videos he's done on the subject:
Astronaut Chris Hadfield answers the Web’s most searched questions
Chris Hadfield reviews Space Movies, from ‘Gravity’ to ‘Interstellar’
Astronaut Chris Hadfield debunks space myths 
What I learned from going blind in space | Chris Hadfield
Chris Hadfield on 13 Moments That Changed His Life
Chris Hadfield's Life Advice Will Leave You SPEECHLESS - One of the Most Eye Opening Speeches
Linked below is a playlist consisting of videos Hadfield did while on the International Space Station, in which he demonstrates how gravity works onboard the ISS (and in space).
An Astronaut’s Guide To Life in Space (playlist)
He's also covered David Bowie's song ''Space Oddity,'' even going as far as recording a music video for the song, onboard the ISS! You can check out that video here.
On Masterclass, Hadfield has contributed with 28 videos (7+ hours of content) in which he teaches Space Exploration. You'll learn everything there is to know about astronaut training, launching rockets, navigating a space shuttle, and spacewalking! DISCLAIMER: Masterclass is not free. You have to pay for this material.
Last but not least, in 2013 Hadfield released a book called An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. It's one I highly recommend as well. Have fun researching!

Here's the thing:
I don't want to publish my work to be famous.
I want to publish my work to find a weird little group of cult-fans who loves my characters as much as I do and I spiritually adopt them.
And everyone else just leaves me alone.

I have a soft spot for the phrase ' this reminded me of you' , like you could see my deranged soul in a song , a book or a flower. God!

When I write I don't feel like I am making it up as I go, I feel like I'm standing in the room like a ghost and just noting down the events as they happen. Does anyone else feel this way?

PSA: Just a friendly reminder that whenever you start a creative project, you will invariably hit a phase where the Thing™️ appears horrendous and you start asking existential questions. But if you keep working, it invariably passes and starts to resemble something less like the devil's vomit. Doesn't matter if it's art, writing, or what--this happens repeatedly. Carry on.

do you ever just write a single, beautiful line and feel really proud of yourself. then you look five paragraphs down, and there’s a sentence like, “I walked and my legs were walking” and wonder what in the goddamn heck happened
