Anonymous: Hello, do you have any tips for writing sci-fi? (I know it's very vague sorry.)
I’m just going to quote me from the above link:
- Have limits on the technology and room for development to continue. It’s no fun if no wound can be fatal or if everyone can live forever.
- Know your world. You need to know how advanced it is, what politics it is and the culture of this world. It’s fundamental for your characters back-story.
- Decide whether your plot revolves around the sci-fi element or whether it is based around the characters but has sci-fi. For example Star Trek is all about the Sci-Fi whereas I would argue Star Wars is a lot more about the characters. The characters personal story in Star Wars in central, in Star Trek it is more like an afterthought.
- Keep an element of realism.
- Know the science.
Hope these links help!
