Short course on writing fantasy & SF

I may have posted this elsewhere, but this time I'm making it a sticky.

Excellent little course by Jeffrey Carver. Check it out.

This is a great resource. I used it when I first started writing and I still use it on occasion.

I am a newbie here and got to know the features of this forum. Anyway thank you for sharing that website. I don't usually write and because I am looking for a forum that I know will help me with my writing, I encountered this forum. I hope I can be a good writer here. Thanks!

Re: Short course on writing fantasy & SF

Welcome to the world of Aphelion Peter. This forum and website is one of the better ones, (in my opinion) The editors are helpful and I've had a great experience dabbling here.

Lester got a new brain recently so it's still up in the air if he'll remain the same or change into a bloodsucking zombie. I'm betting zombie, but we'll see.

My advice to you is don't try and be a good writer, try and be a consistent writer and have fun while writing. If people say disparaging comments about your writing, laugh at them. If people like your writing, laugh with them. If people don't read your writing, write anyway.

Good luck.
