I can’t believe that THE ORCHID THRONE releases this week! Feels like it was forever away for so long, and suddenly it’s here. Woo hoo!
Our topic at the SFF Seven is Creating representation in our stories – how do you do it, and make sure you do it well. That last bit is key, right? Because about the only thing worse than not having representation of marginalized groups in our stories is having them in there, but in awful ways. Come on over to read more.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is our most frequent story starter — idea, milieu, character, theme, what-if, trope, editor request, etc. Come on over to find out why this is a practical decision for me.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is the first book bought with your own money. Come on over to read the story about mine.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is In Memoriam: a tribute to a writer you admire who has left us. Come on over to hear about Vonda McIntyre.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is a challenge. I’m not sure who proposed this, but it goes: “Share tiny snippet from earliest writing of yours that you can get your hands on. This is kind of a dare, and also I’m nosy.”
It IS quite the dare because it’s kind of scary to show this super old stuff. Come on over to find out more about mine.
I just returned from a week with my family on Lake Coeur d’Alene. So lovely and relaxing! During some conversation, I mentioned Ed Sheeran, and my aunt – who’d never heard of him – asked me how I kept up on discovering new music.
It was an interesting question, and one I had to think about. Finally I said that I see a lot of recommendations on Twitter. Instagram, too. People share Spotify lists or post YouTube videos. She nodded a little at my answer, clearly a bit daunted at the prospect of emulating me there. So, I sent her two Ed Sheeran albums for her birthday.
Coincidentally enough, our topic at the SFF Seven this week is “Keeping up with trends and changes in social media.” Not an easy thing to do for any of us. Come on over to find out more!
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is: “Heroes and heroines – how do you write them differently.” Come on over for my take.
This week, the SFF Seven contemplate the SFF genre and where it’s headed.
Coincidentally enough, I just returned from San Diego Comic Con. Come on over to see what I discovered.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is which fairy tale would you pick to rewrite and why?
It’s kind of a funny question for me, because it’s starting to be more accurate to ask me which fairy tale I *haven’t* rewritten yet. Come on over for more.
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is all about the things we want to do. We’re asking everyone to name three projects we’ve been planning to work on for a long while and haven’t yet touched.
It’s kind of like the writer version of the Island of Lost Toys. Come on over to find out mine.
