A year ago I gave myself a challenge to blog at least once a week. I did it. Woot! Sometimes it's hard to come up with blog posts. What should I talk about? How long should the post be? How do I still get any writing done? That's the topic of my guess blog post … Continue reading The Secret to Successful Blogging

I've been reading a lot about the hero's journey. On a call with writer friends, one asked if I had ever heard of The Virgin's Promise.

What is Science Fantasy (SciFan)?
“Science fantasy is a mixed genre within the umbrella of speculative fiction which simultaneously draws upon and/or combines tropes and elements from both science fiction and fantasy. It also sometimes incorporates elements of horror fiction.”
Science Fantasy (SciFan) is a genre that is often ignored. Not too many people are familiar with the genre, but it was originally coined in the late 1930’s by John W. Campbell, Jr. in his magazine that was (ironically) entitled Unknown.
The Science Fiction genre is often defined as the improbable made possible, whereas the Fantasy genre is commonly defined as the impossible made probable. So then, what is Science Fantasy (SciFan)? Fellow author Ricardo Victoria defines it best as: “A genre that blends fantastic and scientific elements into a coherent worldbuild to tell a story in a more interesting and flexible way.”
