Above all: be daring. Be bold. Follow the path the words are creating, but don’t forget that sometimes it’s okay to make your own path and ask them to follow you instead. And never ever be afraid to fail, because in poetry our biggest failures are often our biggest successes.
Topaz Winters, Singapore, writer & musician
Most science fiction stories start off with a big idea. I usually base mine around the question, “What if?” An even better one for me is, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
Sometimes the small concept is even more fun. This is the spice in a sci-fi story. Whenever you create a scene, go back through it and upgrade the technology. Why turn on a light when you can talk to the house?
Craig S. Boyack, American writer
…Just because you decide to write and publish a book doesn’t mean that people are obligated to buy it. I write stories and post them here for free, and some of my close friends don’t bother reading them. And that’s okay. No one should feel obligated to read my work. I want people reading it because they enjoy it.
Miranda Stone, American writer
