I have been writing science fiction since I was in the sixth grade. One of the problems I have is believing what I write so that readers find what I write believable. I majored in physics and mathematics in college and taught physics, physical science, and mathematics for 37 years before retiring. In my writing, I get bogged down when I attempt to introduce ideas that are not fully founded on current science. Thus, I have some difficulty in writing about FTL travel, even though I want that to be possible in a novel I have been working on for some time. Anyone else have this kind of problem?
