Science Fiction Blogs

If you don’t have a Blog and you are a writer, I would suggest that you start one and contribute a short article a couple of times a week. Here’s the easiest way to start a Blog.

Step 1. Go to http://www.blogger.com and start an account. If you don’t have your own website or you can’t handle all the FTP techie stuff, just check off that you want to use Blogger.com’s website blogspot.com. You have to pick a nice looking template and fiddle a little with the configuration, but this is easy stuff. In five minutes, you will have a nice blog and can start making entries.

That’s it – there is no step 2.

Every day or so, make an entry about what you are reading or writing. Record interesting links, comment on the weather, your pets, or the nasty neighbors.

They say the only way to become a writer is to write. Making daily entries in a journal is the classic way writers hone their skills. Blogs are just online journals and a wonderful tool for a writer.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.

Enjoy!
