So instead of writing today I’ve been snooping the web for resources to help develop some alien races. Here are two that I found today (I’ll also be added them to my “Links and Fun Stuff” page for future reference):
http://www.rbhs.w-cook.k12.il.us/mancoff/lifeform.html First Contact Report: Something every Science Fiction writer should do when creating an alien race.
UPDATE: This link no longer works. However you can check out this great article by i09 on How to Create a Scientifically Plausible Alien Lifeform.
http://www.abooks.com/alien Alien Name Generator: Pick if you want the name to start with a Vowel or Consonant and hit refresh to come up with more options.
Not much of a post I know, but I just wanted to share before I forgot. Talk to you soon.
