Hi all :

A few months ago, I started reading 'fantasy&science fiction' magazine.
I loved reading science fiction and fantasy novels all my life.
When i was a kid, I loved Asimov and all the great sci fi writers.
Many years ago, I loved reading the 'Wheel of time' fantasy books.
Now, I would love to learn to write my own sci-fi/fantasy novels.
I am planning on reading novels for many years to come.
In the future, I can go to college to take creative writing classes
or even declare an english writing major.
I love scifi/fantasy novels, and i would like to write my own.
Any tips ?

Start small, and work your way up. Learn about things like plot, characterization, describing things, grammar, formatting and pacing. Be prepared for criticism, both constructive and abusive. Read up on the science you intend to use - know a little about it, so the real science people don't call you on it. And finally, write, write, write and write some more. You have 1,000 bad stories in you, start getting them out.

It starts with a good idea...me thinks.
Check out philip k dick. .from who we got a lot of great novel layer adopted to sci fi movies.

Good sci fi in my opinion...also tells a story of us humans in our society as it has been in history..as it is today..and what may come tomorrow..All wrapped in a good sci fi movie.

I had a kind of nice story going...where humans
Needs to be shrieked in the future..due to lack of nature's resources..
But i found out that there's a movie coming out soon with that topic.

I am convinced i have thought of this by my own..
But..it's a story many folks could cook up.
