    Hi guys and gals! I am a 29-year-old fantasy and science fiction author with about ten years experience. I haven't had anything published, but I hope to at some point -- as I'm sure most of you do as well. I have written a few "real world" short stories in my time, so I have a grasp on more than...

    Best way of handling long back story?

    The sci-fi/fantasy story I'm working on has roughly 30 years of various events that lead up to the actual story. The only problem is, I'm having some trouble finding a good way to introduce this backstory, given that: - It is necessary to understand the basic premise of the "present day" story...

    What to do with young protagonist's parents?

    I have the issue of having a 17-year-old protagonist in a "journey" type sci-fi story I'm working on - (e.g, the main character leaves for distant locales, etc, etc.)- who is still at an age where his parents are still going to be a major force in his life. I'm finding it very difficult to...

    Apocalypse prologue-Chapter 3 (young adult)

    Hello fellow writers, I posted the first chapter a while back in the young adult section, but I think it should be here since it's sci-fi/fantasy. It's lengthy (three full chapters) so I hope that I catch your attention enough to read it. I appreciate any feedback, but I know these are the...

    Hello everyone! This is my first real attempt at writing, so please take into account that the most I have written before this is an essay or two. Background: Somehow (still working on it) aliens have landed. They are purple blooded, Predator-sounding Humanoids. They have set up a base...

    The Masterpiece Project

    This time, I spelled the title right! I will post the first chapter and see what response comes out of it before posting the next chapter. Here it goes! Chapter One Joseph Hunger twists my stomach into knots. How long have I been here in this four-walled glass...

    Chapter intro: Discovery

    Chapter 1: Discovery Sunrise hit the loft flooding the make shift living room. Light bounced off the plain white walls until taken over by the glow of a small table top television. The clock on the wall read just about 7:45am, the long hand was just about at the nine. Noises could be heard...
