Free Online Sources of Science News

The weekly science article round up blogs was too massive so I’m now more selective with what I post. However, I thought I would show my readers how to find the latest scientific information from free online sources so they’d know how to find trending science news themselves. I find the best means of monitoring trends is through social media/news aggregaters.

I will tweak the format for this blog. I will still be scanning trending articles for reference material for writing. I plan to choose the most inspiring article, or a group of articles if they share a common theme, and write a weekly commentary on it. I will also create a post that lists my sources for free online science articles so my readers will know how to obtain the information themselves. This started as a list of my weekly reading materials but compiling and coding it in a weekly blog post is too time intensive so I’m changing this blog’s format.

Gaming    Alternative Medicine    Archaeology

Anthropology    History    Spirituality

Inspiration for Fantasy August 18, 2016

This is the debut of a new feature. I have “Inspiration for Science Fiction” weekly posts. Now I’ll have “Inspiration for Fantasy” posts I will release on Thursdays. The pick of the week shows how science and fantasy inspiration can mesh with each other and overlap. Though I now want to search out inspiration for fantasy focused stories. It’s worth checking out the “Inspiration for Science Fiction” blogpost for ideas for urban/contemporary fantasy.
