Writers Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy is a collection of essays and interviews by and with many of the movers-and-shakers in the industry. Each contributor covers the specific element of craft he or she excels in. Expect to find varying perspectives and viewpoints, which is why you many find differing opinions on any particular subject. 

This is, after all, a collection of advice from professional storytellers. And no two writers have made it to the stage via the same journey-each has made his or her own path to success. And that's one of the strengths of this book. The reader is afforded the luxury of discovering various approaches and then is allowed to choose what works best for him or her.

  1. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!

    Here is my blog post - joraweb.com
