I spend a lot of time wandering round the web looking for things that interest me. Of particular interest to me is intelligent conversation (something of a rarity online). So I’m particularly pleased with my latest find.
Authoretica is a site focussed on speculative fiction writing. Whether you’re interested in reading or writing SF, this is a great place to visit.
Its got author interviews, novel excerpts, works in progress, poetry, short stories, articles on how to get published and on writing itself. Top that lot off with a forum where members can chat with each other, and you’ve got yourself a great little community.
Now from time to time I fancy myself as an author. Until, that is, I sit down and try to turn one of my ideas into a story. At which point I rapidly give up in frustration. Despite my own limitations though, I find the process of writing to be of great interest. Who knows. One of these days I may develop sufficient patience and determination to finish something.Eoghann Irving is amongst other things the creator and Editor of Solar Flare.
