- Improving Your Craft for the Professional Writer
It takes more than just moxie to write good space opera these days. Readers have grown sophisticated (read: jaded) and will pick things apart for the slightest things.
Further, as my mentors remind me, your science fiction requires setting more than any other genre.
Depth, richness, consistency.
To get there, I routinely walk through a complicated process that touches on all the ways I want THIS space opera universe to be different from the others I have written, as well as unique aspects that will drive the story.
What kind of star drive will you use to get around? What will you call your hand-held weapon? What will you call your currency?
All these questions serve to enrich your universe, and drag the readers back for more, so take a look at my process and see what it can do for yours.
This is a 201-level book, taking you from writing merely good novels to that place where you are turning a quarter of a million or more words into one long, engaging story that your fans just can’t put down.
Be sure to read the entire Business For Breakfast books and see how it can help you improve your writing craft and up your publishing game.
