Around the Web: Writing Resources, African Sci-Fi, Posthumous Publishing, and NaNoWriMo Prep

5 Oct 2018

Hello, everyone! And happy Friday! Once again I’m back to share what I’ve been reading Around the Web lately. I hope you find these links interesting, fun, helpful, or a combination of all three.

 

A Writing Resource

 

Hey, writers! You know how important editors are, right? Well do you also know that many editors are online sharing their expertise? Louise Harnby is one such editor and she has all kinds of posts on writing, editing, and publishing. Her website is one I have bookmarked because there are always new things to learn there.

 

 

African Sci-Fi

 

Writer Tade Thompson addresses discussions of African science fiction on Lit Hub. Thompson talks about how movies like Black Panther have propelled Afrofuturism and African SFF into the (Western) spotlight, but those genres actually have long histories. If you’re into literary history, you’ll enjoy this article.

 

Posthumous Publishing

 

What do you think of books published posthumously? What if those books are unfinished? Book Riot writer Grace Lapointe considers these questions in light of news that Jane Austen’s unfinished novel, Sandition, is being made into a television miniseries. Read her view, then let us know what you think.

 

 

Novel Prep

 

Let’s bookend this post with another resource, shall we? This one is particularly relevant to those of you planning to do National Novel Writing month this year. It’s NaNoWriMo’s Nano Prep page. It has everything you need to get ready for November, from writing help to community engagement tips. It’s worth checking out even if you’re a pantser.
