Today’s reblog post is a little bit different. I just hit the point in my old posts where I put up A Writer’s Index to Making Light, and A Making Light General Index. which I have now added to my permanent pages over here on kellymccullough.com.
When I wrote the original posts I had just gone through and read all of Making Light to that point as part of my program of ongoing research/writing-education/fun reading in my field. As a way of integrating and digesting the information, I created a couple of topical indexes—yes, I am the sort of geek who finds creating topical indexes to be fun and diverting. Sadly, these days I just don’t have the kind of time necessary to create or even update indexes.
Making Light is an online community founded by Teresa Nielsen Hayden whose current frontpage poster/moderators include: Avram Grumer, Jim Macdonald, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, and Abi Sutherland. It is an enormously rich source of publishing industry and writing information as well as a place filled with interesting intellectual discussion on a myriad of other topics. If you’re a writing in the f&sf field and you’re not at least periodically checking in on Making Light, you’re very much missing out.
(As with all my reblogging posts, the originals are still up over at the Wyrdsmiths blog and original comments may be found there. Wyrdsmiths versions: General Index, and A Writer’s Index to Making Light)
