Around The Web: Science in Fiction, Self-Worth, Bookstore Architecture, and Bookish Décor
Hello again, readers! This week’s Around the Web features some sci-fi writing advice, some thoughts about self-worth and publishing, a look at a library, and some bookish décor ideas.
Science in Science Fiction
You don’t have to be a scientist to write science fiction, but there is value in getting the science right when you’re writing. You don’t want your readers to get distracted by inaccuracies or impossibilities. If this is something you’re interested in, check out Alice Henderson’s piece on research and bringing fact to fiction.
On Publishing and Feeling Seen
And if you are writing and have yet to be published, Jane Friedman has some words for you. In a recent post, she discusses some of the advice she regularly gives her students about the expectations we have around publishing and self worth.

Now, I don’t usually go to Architectural Digest for bookish news, but they recently covered a new bookstore in China that will surely spark some bookish love. Check it out.
