This community is made fabulous by everyone trying their best and being supportive and encouraging of each other’s growth.

January’s THEME:

Space Adventure!

Up Up and away! Blast off? To the far outer reaches!? Yes yes!

We’ve all daydreamed about it at one time or another – What is out there? Well now you can cook up a space adventure all your own! Life on other worlds, space ships / space gates, space stations! – bounty hunters, metropolis, dystopian, galactic cities and heck what does a market look on a sci fi world? –  basically whatever science fiction awesomeness you can dream up! If you’re someone that struggles with science fiction and prefers fantasy then why not try to mix your Science Fiction WITH some of your favorite fantasy elements and you’ll see you are actually more comfortable with it then you realize.

Please challenge yourself. Please do not just send a card of a galactic sky with one object in front of a starry sky, that would not be fair to everyone else and would be sent back unswapped – remember challenge yourself! I updated the Science Fiction Pinterest board below to help give you a launch!
