Boing boing pointed to this today... a handly little free tutorial for wannabe sci-fi writers. I've not read it all yet, but thought I'd share.

It looks like a site I'll really want to scour through - at least, when I've completed NaNoWriMo 2005. :D (I just broke 10,112 words. The average for Sunday is 10,002. I never yet had this good a year.)
