Writer’s Workshop: Keeping it Real

One of the things many of us seem to struggle with throughout our simming is the simple (or not-so-simple) ability to ‘keep it real’. What does this mean? Well, we know that we are all writing in a fantasy world, even if that world is well set up and spelled out in many ways. With so much that could go wrong, literally, it can be much easier to lose control of the story – and wreck the realism behind your character – than it can be to play it like you would if you were standing in your character’s shoes.

That’s why it is important to know how to handle escalation in your story the right way. Sure, we could create enough chaos to send every writer in the Fleet into a chaotic tizzy, but the result of that would be a number of one dimensional characters that everyone will quickly lose interest in. After all, what good are our characters when they are no longer ‘big’ enough to save the universe?

Thanks to io9, here are a few tips that can really help you keep your perspective in the middle of the chaos we all sim through during our missions. By keeping it real, so to speak, you will end up in a far better place than if you chose to go the easy route and allow your characters to become just part of the backdrop. Keep these tips in mind as you write your next sim and see how you can manipulate your story into something purely epic.
