Blog Recommendations

Blogger ate the Science of the Week post I had scheduled for Friday. Luckily, I was able to recover this post I had scheduled for today. I came across two blogs last week that are useful for writers, particularly science fiction/fantasy writers.

If you'd like to learn more about the business side of writing, I recommend Kristine Kathryn Rusch's website. She writes in several different genres (mystery, romance, and science fiction/fantasy) under two other pen names. You can find her complete bibliography here if you'd like to see her work. However, she also has a business blog which can be found here. She has some eye-opening, must-read articles about the publishing industry and how it's changing. I particularly recommend "Advocates, Addendums, and Sneaks, Oh My!"I don't know if her experiences are representative of the industry, but all I can say is let the writer beware.

If you'd like to learn more about other cultures, hop on over to TalkToYoUniverse. They have a special culture section where writers from all over the world share everyday habits of the cultures where they live. For example, a recent post discussed bathing practices in Japan. They are looking for contributors too. You can find more information on this page.

You're welcome, Juliette! I was going to post the link in the BU group, but I see you found my blog and the links to yours first.
