Writing Science Fiction

A guideline to how to woke-ify it, from Frank Fleming (who has a new book out), over at Sarah Hoyt’s place.

Yes, this is a problem I’ve always had, too:

This one is going to be harder for some than others. Sarah Hoyt has been pretty good about this, while I have always struggled. But if at all possible, when you sit down to write, don’t be a straight white male. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with being a straight white male — you were born that way, no fault of your own — it’s just that everyone hates you. So stop it.

I don’t think I’m even going to work on that one.

Sarah has some blurbs about the book.

  1. ““Starts off in a world much like our own, where the woman in HR sets you up for a date with a demon slayer, and the boss holds human sacrifices in the basement. And then it gets weird.”–Michael Z. Williamson, author of the Freehold Series”

    Umm, yeah. ?

  2. Rand, what I really want to know is how you get your links to open in a new tab. I have actually viewed your page source, copied your link code, and pasted it into my own reply, and it just opens up right in the current page. I hate that, and don’t want it to happen. But how can your links work otherwise, when exact copies of them don’t? Please, please HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

    1. You just need to add target=”_blank” within your link to open a new window. For example:

      a href=”http://www.transterrestrial.com” target=”_blank”>transterrestrial /a

      I kept off the beginning and ending brackets so you could see the html code.
