One of the most important connections to establish in your novel is between the story and the reader. Many writers do this by creating a relatable, impactful story. Everyone can understand a romance or a day-to-day problem, which makes it so easy for a reader to empathize with the characters and their position in the novel. This connection is strained when you have an unrealistic world. That’s when guides come in!
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a quirky adventure following a dysfunctional group of weirdos on an improbable journey. It’s a novel written by Douglas Adams, one filled with absurd situations and British humor.
Without any spoilers, here is my review of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!
I think it’s about time I talk about one of my opinions on the most popular genre of fiction. Fantasy comes in so many forms. We have so many classic examples of good fantasy writing and bad fantasy writing. I want to focus specifically on pacing, rather than popular novels and writing methods.
For this week’s writing thoughts I will be talking about a recurring theme in cyberpunk stories; natural vs synthetic humanity. It’s a classic story that goes back to the tale of Frankenstein and his monster. Having talked about the cyberpunk genre earlier this week, this topic sprung to mind and it’s a fun one to focus on!
Here are my thoughts!
Welcome to the start of a new series of blog posts! Writing Thoughts will be primarily opinions on aspects of writing in all forms of media, from books to movies.
