S8E2 – The Science Fiction Genre

Genres can be tricky things for new authors. The genre often determines the audience, writing style, and even basic themes contained in the book. Many new authors ask in forums across the internet which genre is best for their book. This series is dedicated to those authors, in hopes of answering those questions. Each episode will break down a different genre, from the expected word count to the sentence structure.

Science Fiction is about boldly going where no writer has gone before. Like Fantasy, there is infinite space for creativity and imagination, but it differs in one major place. Technology. This episode is all about the different aspects of Sci-Fi, from imagining futuristic technology to using modern theories and ideas in writing.
