This week, I want to highlight some websites which may be useful resources for those of you who write fantasy or science fiction.
- Mythcreants (https://mythcreants.com/): This site delves into the inner workings of spec fiction. There are daily blog posts, podcasts, and other items which share techniques in world-building, characterization, and writing, in general, which can be applied to your stories.
- Fantasy Author's Handbook (http://www.writersdigest.com/prompts): This site features Philip Athans, the New York Times bestselling author, editor, and writing coach. He offers practical writing advice with weekly blog posts and through his Twitter account.
- Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (http://www.sfwa.org/): This site offers numerous free resources for the craft, queries, and publishing tips. There is a fee to access some information, and you must meet certain eligibility requirements (such as being published in the genre).
