A new story from my series of counterfactual biographies went up at Cobalt. It’s about Rachel Garrett, the only (ever) female captain of the USS Enterprise. Yes, it’s about Star Trek. I am not ashamed.
I wrote a column on learning about your own process for FFC.
Have you checked out Exits Are yet? This is the brainchild of Mike Meginnis who asked a bunch of writers (Matt Bell, Brian Oliu, Christopher Newgent, etc.) to help him out with an interesting project. The writers meet up on gchat and Meginnis acts as a text adventure game, giving a set-up and obstacles. The other writer responds as the player. The results are fascinating. I’m especially enjoying seeing how different writers respond differently to Meginnis’ prompts. I was stoked to be a part of this. Mine’s here.
