The bad fan fiction doesn’t seem like a big problem, but give that ten-year-old time to grow up and the fear of many writers–that their beautiful stories will be replaced with soulless AI-generated tales–becomes a lot more plausible.
However, some aspects of human writing may never be replicable by AI. Each person brings their unique soul and experiences to their writing in a way AI can’t (we hope).
If you want to distinguish your writing from AI-generated writing, play up your humanity.
When you get beta feedback on your novel, you’re likely to go through a rollercoaster of emotions. Read this post to prepare.
You’ve written a novel and edited it to the best of your ability. Congratulations!
But it’s not ready to make its own way in the world yet. First you need to go through the terrifying process of getting feedback from beta readers.
These are avid readers of your genre, who may or may not also be writers, who are willing to read your not-quite-final draft and shred your heart by telling you what’s not working provide honest feedback.
When you write a fantasy novel based in a non-Earth world, you get to make up everything. And with all that freedom comes the opportunity to go way overboard in your worldbuilding. If such is your wont, here are five ways you might do it.
Every fantasy reader loves a fully fleshed out world. They might see only a tiny fraction of it (they’d *better* see only a tiny fraction of it), but they can feel if it exists.
In a fully fleshed out world, the forests are greener and every carnivore knows what it’s hunting. The sky might be purple, but we have the physics to explain why. And you’ll always know which lord build the castle that saved your hero from demons, and how much it cost them.
So if your goal is to give your readers what they want, here are five ways to go overboard with your worldbuilding.
Of course, if you follow these instructions you may never get around to writing your story, but isn’t the price worth it?*
