Magical Words

January 27, 2008

As I mentioned in Friday’s post, Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, C.E. Murphy, and I have started a new blog at http://magicalwords.net.  This is a project about which all four of us are very excited.  Here’s an excerpt from my first post on the blog, which explains what we hope to accomplish with the site: 

When we first started talking about what we wanted this site to be, we agreed that it would be fun to discuss issues we encounter as writers of speculative fiction.  Each of us specializes in different subgenres of fantasy, and each of us has dabbled in other genres as well, be they science fiction, mystery, romance, or mainstream.  And in writing these various types of books, we encounter creative issues that are both universal to writers of fiction and quite specific to the type of books we’re writing.  The intersection of those concerns, the ways in which each writer deals with his or her creative challenges, can be fun to explore.  It can also be incredibly illuminating for seasoned professionals and beginners alike.  So that’s we hope to do here, when we’re not posting less heady stuff, or rants, or whatever else moves us on a given day.  We hope you enjoy it.  Please feel free to come by, and bring a friend or two.

So please do stop by the site and join the discussion.
