5 Tips for Writing Speculative Fiction

Hey, guys! I'm back from my break, but I'm still knee-deep in writing. (I finally hit my stride with this project!) You can find me over at NA Alley today, discussing 5 Tips for Writing Speculative Fiction--NA or otherwise. Why don't you stop by and check it out? :D




Question of the Week:
How was your November? :)

P.S. Don't forget to celebrate Day of the Ninja (which also happens to be my birthday) on Friday!

It's awesome when you hit your stride with a book. Sometimes it takes longer to get that rhythm going, but when it comes, it's awesome.

Day of the Ninja . . . how cool is that! Happy early birthday . . . I'll have to check out your post. I'm not entirely sure I even understand what speculative fiction is!

Best ninja song since Inner Ninja. Very good, my birthday was in November and I got books both at local Black Friday and online. Also a blouse on the insistent of my mother. First clothing I bought online. We have our blogger Ninja Alex and glad too.

I added 3k today--because that's what you do on birthdays! LOL

Carrie Butler said...

It really does!

Carrie Butler said...

It is cool! I've had ninja as a nickname for as long as I can remember, so when they created the holiday and it coincided with my birthday, I flipped. LOL

I hope you enjoy it!

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

best feeling ever, right?! I just hit a stride this week and I'm so worried it'll go away again lol congrats!

Carrie Butler said...

I was worried, too! Then it did go away—or maybe it didn't, and I just got busy with client work. Ahhh!

I hope yours is going well, Beth! :)
