Tips for Sci-Fi writers

Sci-Fi Writers tips from JT

Write a story that people will want to read.

If your Sci-Fi story includes human characters, try to make the characters as emotionally true to life as possible.

Make your readers feel that they are there in time and place.

When quoting a character, use language that people use in everyday conversations. Otherwise, try to write with currently accepted language style. However, when you write about the distant future, remember that language changes with time. Write with the style that you think may be appropriate in the time period that covers your story. Example: Read stories that were written during past time periods and compare them with the use of language then as it is used today.

Remember that it?s more important that you write regardless of your composition expertise?editors need jobs too and they will correct your manuscript.

NOTE: Submit your suggestions on Sci-Fi writing.
