TIPS FOR SCI FI WRITING!!!

Tip 1: Master the Basics.To simplify the discussion of writing, I assume that a writer will study writing and understand the basics of what a novel offers.Every writer should understand theme, plot, characterization and point of view, dialogue,setting and the mechanics of syntax and punctuation.

Tip 2: Understand the Various Categories of Science Fiction
Science fiction is usually teamed with fantasy and horror to make a full scale of offerings. 

Tip 3: Check the Originality of Your Concept.Before  writing your book, answer the question why is this book different from all the other books being written and sold?

Tip 4: Provide a Reason for Your World's Existence.The science behind science fiction relates to the probability that your world could exist. Check that the political system, economic reality, social orders, historic detail, and scientific reality are likely.

Tip 5:
Be Specific About the Natural World.Regardless of where your story exists, being specific about the natural world will add credibility and interest to the reader.
Tip 6: Provide A Strong Character.Provide one strong character, or more, who  either:
a) learn about science,
b) teach science,
c) research science,
d) do field practicum such as setting up a study, collect or analyze data,
e) or fight off the jungle i.e. they love experiencing the adventure of new experience.


Tip 7: Demonstrate a Science Concept or Process.To make a more powerful science fiction story, look at one of the scientific processes and use it to demonstrate how science affects the world.

Tip 8: Include Cool and Creative Use of Technology
This is the easy part for most writers.
Technology news hits us from many sources especially if you subscribe to a variety of news papers and magazines. 

Tip 9: Include Many Fun and Exciting Events
A plot with fun, exciting, and unusual events takes us out of our day-to-day routine and puts us into the realm of having fun.
