Steps to Writing a Fiction BookThe steps to writing a fiction book
How to write and publish your bestseller! by Philip Athans
It is a simple, useful guide, available in the English version instead of being confused". Some of the samples are brief, simple and remind me of what I have learnt since I was a child - some of the readings felt old-fashioned, others "Hey! All in all, the game is a good place to start for authors of science fiction and imaginary fiction.
Are you looking for a super-detailed guidebook, this is not the one. But if you want a casual, wide-ranging debate (or reminder), this is a good work. In any case, it urges authors to take into account factors such as dimensions, speech, policy (including type of governments, with a practical drop-down list) and cultural aspects. In addition, the writer will discuss elements such as romanticism, actions and humor - the things that really make up the game.
We are sure that new authors can take something away from these concepts in order to really make their world into something truly special and interesting. They' also useful memories for incumbent authors, as these things can sometimes slide through the crevices. This guide also contains a brief comparative study of the sub-genres of science fiction and imagination. Although to be reasonable, the writer began by pointing out that sub-genres are the material of the case, a comment for new writers recollect instead of just slipping over.
The" Don't Spare the Action" section was a good reading, with hints on the topic of "business" (of which I am writing enough, although I had never even learned this concept in this context) and some useful samples. In my opinion both the emphasis on plausibility and the very brief comparisons of actions, force and coercion.
And I also liked the section "It's Not Science Fiction Without Technology". One more little problem I had that fed on me in a veterinary annoyance when it comes to examples: the writer is touching religions, but he has the same worship system as everyone else when he tries to say something.
There is so much more in our own story than just the Islamic or Western system - perhaps it would have been a good idea to throw a link to Marion Zimmer Bradley's book or something similar instead of selling the same system to convey the point.
I have to say that I did not really understand the brief by R.A. Salvatore "Hugo Mann's Perfect Soul" and the following "Some thoughts on....". It is definitely not what I would have been expecting to finish the script, which had so much attention on very special, very dedicated samples (Star Wars, Dune, etc.).
It was disappointing to see how much archetypal genre spending. At the end of the day, however, I still think the work is a good one. I have emphasized some points I should recall, a good indication for any encyclopedia I have used. Well, I think my favorite part was really the laid-back, almost unbiased sound, which is more enjoyable to look up.
