I little while ago, I put up a post saying that I’d like to blog for you (That offer is still open, btw).  Essentially, the idea was that I would write a guest post for your blog and you would write one for mine.  You pick the topic I write and I pick the topic you write.  We both get some exposure, so it’s pretty much a win-win for both of us.

The first person to take me up on that offer was Brian over at The New Author.

He asked me to write something about what it takes to write in the science fiction / fantasy genres.

I spent the next couple of weeks working on this.  Now, normally, it doesn’t take me that long to write a post – so if you’re interested in the whole swap blog posts idea, don’t fear – just shoot me an email.  No, it normally doesn’t take so long, but I took this very seriously.  I mean, who the hell am I to give anyone advice on writing?  I have no pro publishing credits to my name.  So if I’m going to do something like that, I am going to do it right.

The result was a rather lengthy piece filled with lots of details that help me and, therefore, I think will help others.  Because it was a rather lengthy piece, Brain felt the need to break it up into three bite size morsels.  I don’t blame him one bit for doing that.  I probably would’ve done the same had I published that piece here on All Things From My Brain.

If you’ve ever wondered about what it takes to write scifi and fantasy, or if you just wonder what another aspiring author thinks that it takes, you should check out the guest post.

I hope you enjoy it.  And while you’re over there, take a look at some of the other stuff Brian has going.  You’ll be happy you did.
