Basics to Science Fiction

Basics to Science Fiction

A Lesson by Julia Simoneau
"

These are a few of the basics for science fiction. Every author writes differently, so some of my basics will help you create your own base.

"

With many of these courses, the lessons are rather long. In my course, I shall simply give you the basic tools to write your own piece. Every author has his own writing fingerprint, so I want you to learn what your fingerprint is.

The Basics:

*Research! Although this is science fiction, there must be science fact within it to make it believable. In cases where the setting is in a foreign time period, research modern knowledge, then apply it to your topic. It creates a far more believable outcome.

* Hold the foreign tongues please. In many science fiction pieces where aliens are used, the author will spend a while creating a new language. However, the new language can confuse the audience, so try to write in a known tongue.

* This is a story Make a plot! You would not believe how many times and the plot is simply a shallow science fiction. Write sub plots and use different literary devices. The science fiction is just genre and not the whole plot. As with a cheesy romance story is just about two people kissing with no conflict, a science fiction with no conflict is quite dull.

I am working on a Sci-Fi manuscript based in the modern world, and physics/cosmology are playing a leading role in the plot formation and unfolding in ways that inspire me to do better... Great advice
