Write, read, and write some more. Finish your projects, then polish them and publish them.

In the modern era of publishing, the only thing holding you back from realizing your dreams of being a writer is yourself. However, that said, a good editor is the best ally you can acquire. A properly edited book is inherently easier to read and keeps distractions like typos and clunky wording from detracting from the pleasure of your story.(less)

A solid dark science-fantasy story from Scalzi. As I mentioned previously, there are definitely overtones of Warhammer 40K's bleak future and I am definitely a fan of what Scalzi has wrought in this particular story.
H.L. Reasby is 50% done with The God Engines: Seriously intrigued by this world. Major shades of Warhammer 40K's dark future which appeals to me tremendously.

Topics Mentioning This Author

Stan Lee
“With great power comes great responsibilty.”
Stan Lee

Isaac Asimov
“Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction -- its essence -- has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.”
Isaac Asimov

Stephen King
“The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed. The desert was the apotheosis of all deserts, huge, standing to the sky for what looked like eternity in all directions. It was white and blinding and waterless and without feature save for the faint, cloudy haze of the mountains which sketched themselves on the horizon and the devil-grass which brought sweet dreams, nightmares, death. An occasional tombstone sign pointed the way, for once the drifted track that cut its way through the thick crust of alkali had been a highway. Coaches and buckas had followed it. The world had moved on since then. The world had emptied.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Albert Schweitzer
“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”
Albert Schweitzer

Henry James
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
Henry James
