Reading Your Work Out Loud

“It can be time consuming, but reading your work out loud does give you a different perspective on it.”

Janice Hardy lists the benefits of the practice.


Writing vs. Science

“Experts tend to fill their novels with esoteric information that gets in the way of the story, so choose your atmospheric/tech descriptions wisely…Because what the vast majority of people want is good stories. They couldn’t care less about the science. Readers want realistic characters, not realistic science.”

— author Gordon Long on “Why Scientists Shouldn’t Write Science Fiction”
