So much incredible #scifi #writing inspiration out there. For today’s, how about a factory that makes stars? Thank you NASA!

More #scifi #writing inspiration: The Heavens Afire. This is the Large Magellanic Cloud, which in this IR image looks like a massive cosmic fireball.

There’s not a lot that can pass for #Fantasy, #scifi, and #horror #writing inspiration, but this one can: alien moon. I like this one in particular because the cover of my soon-to-be released novella has a moon on it.  Yes, I will be sharing that soon.

A photo of Saturn taken by the NASA probe Voyager 1 on November 16, 1980.  The spacecraft, nearly 11 billion miles from the Sun, will shortly become the first human-made object to leave the Solar System and enter a region of interstellar space dubbed “cosmic purgatory.”

Where no one has gone before.

If this isn’t inspiration for #writing science fiction, I don’t know what is…
