    looking for opinions on the beginning of my book. thank you

    Innocence is the key to peace. But where there is struggle and turmoil and history, there is never innocence and there is always a struggle. The young are made cynical and callous by the time they can articulate their thoughts and the old set in their ways with only the voice in their head. But...

    Coolest Invention

    Scifi writers, what's the coolest thing you ever invented for of your stories? For me, it's got to be a bone-based Augment in my ebook, Strand. Biological Augments play a huge part in the series, but this one has to be my favorite. General Phinneas Bragg "Boneblade" has a growth/reinforcement...

    The First Law: short excerpt. ACTION SCENE!- warning, a little bloody

    This is a short excerpt from the third chapter of a book I'm writing, so minor spoilers ahead. I've already posted the first two chapters in an earlier thread. They were a horror. Their faces were flushed, and their eyes showed nothing but whites. They ran, crawled and leaped, tripping...

    Continuity Editing

    Hey writing gang. Just a quick matter of curiosity I'm hoping you all can help me settle. When editing a manuscript that happens to be a SEQUEL, do you ever go back and add things to the first book in the series? I know this is super specific, but I suppose this is assuming both manuscripts are...

    Untitled Sci-Fi Horror Short Excerpt (600ish words)

    We saw the Baychimo against the gas giant of UN-NOPRA long before it showed up on the scanners of our vessel. Jackson, our engineer had spied it as a blip and we, being myself and our pilot, Luiz, decided it was in our best interest as a salvage ship to investigate. It was frozen in place, as if...

    The End As We Know It

    Archer Callahan sat in the front seat of a school bus and stared out the window at the standstill traffic all around them.

    Excerpt - Shadows of Ivy

    I wandered into the back corner of the library and slunk down into a chair at the same small table I had recently chosen as my study spot. Every library I’d ever been in smelled the same; like fifty-year old paper and dust. It was a scent I could recall dating back to elementary school when our...

    coincidences - a pre-script

    This was written for X-files, but Mulder was gone before I submitted it so it's here because I kind of like it. I have changed the names for this to avoid confrontation. Coincidences (As I picture it. I am not a script/screenwriter. It has appeared in a book of shorts and gained quite a lot of...

    My Book Intro

    Intro to my book Basically I'm trying to write a book that's not "just more goddamned sci fi." My focus is going to be on the efforts of the protagonists to force government disclosure. I had an idea to use a journal as a framing device which gave me a fairly interesting idea. My idea is to...
