Aspiring Advice: ... Hey! Where Did My Post Go?


I think someone warped my advice column and put it on Ellie Garratt's blog today (you know, the awesome writer gal from the UK with a space helmet?). I'm sharing my thoughts on what makes great science fiction. Not good. Great. So if you're feeling adventurous, zip to her place and see what my answer is. You can get there through here, here, and here.

Thanks for having me over, Ellie!

*Update* Whoops! This post won't actually appear until December 5th. There was a huge miscommunication (on my part). I apologize for making you guys check back throughout the weekend. The lesson for this week? Double check your emails so you have the right date and won't do something embarrassing. My bad, guys. My bad.

I'm David, and we're landing for the weekend - have a good one!

  1. Thanks. I will definitely check out the post. I love the Aspiring Advice, and it's always good to know what others think makes a great Sci-Fi, since opinions vary so.

    Oh, also, I've mentioned you in one of my posts. Check it out, if you'd like: http://wordsoftheworlds.blogspot.com/2012/10/writing-with-inspiration-writing-asides.html

    Cheers!

  14. Hi everyone. It appears David and I beamed on to separate planets and lost our communicators. David's post was scheduled for December 5th as part of my new Speculative Fiction Writers weekly posting, which starts in November. Unfortunately, due to work and other constraints, I didn't check my emails or David's blog until today. Blushing with embarrassment as you can imagine.

    Please, please warp back on December 5th. I promise it will be a journey worth taking.

  15. *epic blogger fail facepalm*

    I'm usually pretty good at staying on top of things, but I totally blew it this time. I apologize for the confusion and premature posting, Ellie, guys. Consider this a time travel experiment. The post was sent to the future. I'm sure it will still be awesome in a couple months. :)

  16. That's the fun part of life David.... We must role with the punches and not take things too seriously.
