Writing Tips by Charlie Jane Anders: Why You Must Read Her

I am a big fan of, as anyone who reads this blog is probably aware. Whether it’s your morning spoilers, weekly comic reviews, or commentary on the latest science fiction and fantasy books and movies, I can’t get enough. One thing I don’t like about is that articles about writing science fiction and fantasy are few and far between. I know there are sites other than that cover this topic (more about this later today), but it’s a shame doesn’t do more of it. Because Charlie Jane Anders (@charliejane) writes some great articles.
