Fantastic Friday Writers - Introduction

Author: Anastasia V. Pergakis // Category:

I am so excited about this new blog venture! Fantastic Friday Writers is a group of five writers in the fantasy and/or sci-fi genres. Every other Friday we will be posting blogs about the same topic. This is sort of like a group blog - a group blog has multiple writers posting about a weekly topic on the same blog. This group has multiple writers posting about a weekly topic on different blogs.

The linky widget below will allow you to 'hop' to the other blogs to read their posts! This is sure to be fun! Our first posts are merely introducing ourselves and this new project. As we are in different time zones, some posts might be up later than others on Friday morning. Regardless, you will still get five different view points on the same topic.

Now, myself, I write High Fantasy but I have a few ideas in the future for Sci-Fi and Urban Fantasy. My followers know that I am highly character driven in my stories and I post often about this topic. World building is a key component to writing Fantasy and Sci-fi stories, so I also blog about this a great deal.

This new group will blog about world building, character development - gearing all posts to fantasy/sci-fi genres. We will also discuss other aspects of writing such as critiquing, query letters, etc. This is sure to be fun for everyone and I hope you guys enjoy hopping around to the different bloggers in the group.

SO - without further ado, use the Mr. Linky below to meet the rest of the Fantastic Friday Writers!

Next week we'll be discussing what inspires our fantasy/sci-fi minds to write what we do! That is sure to be some great posts - see you then!

I am too Alex! Thanks for stopping by.

Elizabeth, always great to see you here on my blog.

Nancy - Your character sounds like a great one, and not because we have the same name! Thanks so much for stopping by! It's great to meet another High Fantasy author - we seem to be a rare group!

Awwww, that is such a MASSIVELY generous offer, I am totally honoured. I'm so gutted I can't commit myself to this, it would be so awesome. Hopefully I can do the odd thing for you when I have the time, you know I would love to help.

This looks brilliant! I couldn't actually join anyway because I'm the wrong genre BUT I can't wait to see what's posted in the coming weeks.
