Happy Friday, future readers. I am starting a writing blog on my author website to chronicle my journey to improve my craft skills as a writer and storyteller.
A little intro in who I am: a writer aspiring to become a published author in speculative fiction, both in short stories and novels. I love science fiction and fantasy among many other types of stories. I'm one of those readers and tv/movie watchers who can't help but analyze the story themes and character development in everything I consume. Check out my bio page to see a little more about me.
I plan to keep these blog posts short. I'll share small bites of my thoughts in what I'm failing at or succeeding at in my path towards improvement. I'll post links to resources that I've learned from.
Additionally, I'll be writing reviews of speculative fiction media (short stories, books, tv, movies), but unlike typical reviews that assign a starred rating, I'll discuss the story theory behind each piece and analyze it from a writer's perspective.
Here's a link to one of my favorite writing teachers, K.M. Weiland, explaining story theory: https://www.helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/story-theory/#
Thanks for reading!
