Anything Goes

In sci-fi and fantasy, and any genres in between.

The notion came about as an acquaintance and I were having a casual discussion about writing and genres.  As a sci-fi fan, she commented how these genres can allow for easy outs when plot twists or endings prove difficult; you could pretty much throw in any scenario, one that would never work (or be believable) in “real world” fiction.

These genres offer opportunities to compose stories that may not always have that rational or coherent a segue or ending.  There have been five grisly murders in the deserted, desolate Folle house.  Alas, not only do they have the budding detective scratching their head, the killings have the author scratching theirs.  Ah!  Maybe a demon lives in the cellar?  Or perhaps the place is a gathering place for evil aliens?  And what about poor Jean-Paul?  The young man is falling over a high cliff, knowing he’ll contact those boulders below within seconds—and, man, is that going to hurt.  Why not have someone—something—catch his fall?  Off he goes, to another world and an exciting adventure, where anything is possible.  The sky, literally, is [not] the limit.

Sci-fi and fantasy, and any genres in between allow for a myriad of scene/chapter possibilities.  Action, doings, and goings-on don’t have to be logical, which empowers a very creative [inventive] imagination to run wild—so, anything truly does go.

111clipartlibrary111111Writing, however, is no walk in the park.  Regardless of genre, penning a story can prove [exceptionally] difficult.  Plotting, appropriate character sketches, detailed settings, and vivid descriptions are part and parcel of constructing a viable story.  Keying words is one thing; making them meld to create an entertaining read is another.  But given the process is a labor-of-love for us writers, we’re up to the challenge(s).  😉

Ensure there’s logic—even in the illogic—and know that as the author, you hold the reigns.  Truly, anything goes.

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
