Also, I just wanted to check that this was ok. I'm writing a planet where the land masses have huge expanses of beach/salt/pebbles -- visible from planetary orbit -- because the tides are really extreme. Is there anything particular about the moon that would cause this? Would it be bigger or smaller than our moon? Have a tighter orbit? A less regular orbit? Or is it irrelevent, and it could just happen as a freak of nature?
I know it's not a little detail, but I also wondered if there were any communities for finding a writing buddy or anything like that.
Thanks in advance!
