Writing Science Fiction Stories – Guest Post by Craig Boyack…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

In previous posts on this site I’ve talked about writing paranormal tales, my love of short fiction, and fantasy. I also write a bit of science fiction, and that’s the topic today.


We grow and mature as we write. The more we produce, the more we learn about ourselves. I love a good space opera. I read them, I go to movies with that theme… I don’t write them well. Maybe I should make this one of my personal challenges, but sometimes you just have to face facts.

My science fiction works best as what I call “ten minutes into the future.” I totally stole that from an old television series that was based upon a New Coke advertisement. Bonus points if you remember.

I write better science fiction that is more like Planet of the Apes. I really enjoy them, and feel no need to test the space opera…

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
