The Scientific American Guest Blog
Two years after starting my writing career in speculative fiction, last month I decided to see where a little branching out would take me. I read an article about science writing and decided that given my science background and my passion for writing, I’d check out the National Association of Science Writers Website. When I e-mailed their mailing list, I was overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of the people who responded. I received everything from advice from experienced professionals in the field to words of encouragement from others also in exploratory mode.
I also had the pleasure of running into (as much as one can run into anyone on the internet) Bora Zivkovic, who asked me if I’d ever considered submitting to the Scientific American Guest Blog. I said that I hadn’t, but I’d certainly be interested. I asked him if he’d done so, and that’s when I learned he was the blog’s editor. He asked me if I could submit some writing samples to him.
Could I? Oh yes, I definitely could, and I did. I guess he liked what he read, because today you’ll find my article, “Deep Thought is Dead, Long Live Deep Thought“, up on the blog. I’ve several articles in the works, so be sure to bookmark my blog and follow me on Facebook or Twitter to keep abreast of my comings and goings on Scientific American.
