So that's why, as I mentioned in Part 3 of Starving Artist, after Ben's "Making it Weird" workshop I went ahead and created a Facebook group for NCWA's Spec Fic Authors - come join us if you are a Spec Fic writing member of NCWA It is a place where we can gather, at least virtually, and support one another, ask questions, whatever.
Ben's workshop was also the genesis of the idea to create a new blog, called "Strange Realms - Spectacularly Redeemed," I intend it to be "A Place of Hope. A Place of Light. A Place of Healing. A Place of Life." The idea is to spectacularly redeem strange realms creation in our writing. I want it to be a place where Christian Spec Fic authors can talk about why they write Spec Fic, what they write, and what they hope to accomplish with it, both what they hope to get out of it, and what they hope their readers get out of their Spec Fic.
And one thing led to another, and that is why I am thinking of also creating a Strange Realms - Spectacularly Redeemed Facebook group for those who would be interested. It would be open to all Christian Spec Fic writers, and readers, whereas the NCWA Spec Fic group is intended to be a smaller, local group, so if anyone wants to join, let me know, here in the comments or tag me in Facebook, I need one other member before Facebook will let me create a group (There cannot be only one).
