Failure is an integral part of creativity. Use the Timeline of Science Fiction Invention or the alphabetic Glossary to see them all. Due to the large volume of entries received in the most recent competition, the contest will now close in July to allow more time to read entries and compile the shortlist. I am posting my list of authors alphabetically. Many novels, even quite a few adequately written ones, are ­clichés of form which conform to clichés of expectation. 9 Do it every day.

Be sure that your story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. Try to develop an unalloyed passion for it. It encompasses not only the big-picture, strategic choices such as point of view and choice of narrator, but also tactical choices of grammar, punctuation, word usage, sentence and paragraph length and structure, tone, the use of imagery, chapter selection, titles, etc. A story that switches to past tense in the middle (unless for a very good reason) then switches back to the present again is likely to be returned to the author in short order.
