CYBERPUNK - Terrible Writing Advice
 
06:22
Technology sucks! Here is a cyberpunk video that proves it. What has technology ever done for humanity? It certainly can’t be that it’s not the technology, but how humans utilized their tools that determines their quality of life. No. That can’t be it at all. Better ramble about that in my cyberpunk story and dress it up in purple prose. Also I should add some cyber powers while I’m at it. Those won’t make technology look cool.

Excellent. Just as I planned. Intrigue plots need a few things to work. No, not a perfect synergy of mystery, tension, great characterization and exciting action. All intrigue needs is a bunch of hooded dudes spouting cryptic nonsense at a screen showing the protagonists as they struggle in vain to figure out what is going on. What is really going on?

ANTIHEROES - Terrible Writing Advice
 
06:44
The steely stare of the bitter and lone writer need not be in vane! Why struggle to write a hero when you can write an antihero instead? Antiheroes are way cooler which means a writer can put even less effort into them than other characters! Even better, maturity is optional when writing an antihero. The best antiheroes are the ones that conform to what a 13 year old thinks is cool! A writer can even skimp on dialog when it comes to writing an antihero! So dial your self-awareness back and get ready to brood up a storm as we write an antihero. Just be careful to not cut yourself on all the edginess.

FINISHING A STORY - Terrible Writing Advice
 
06:01
A writer should focus all of their energy worrying about if they are going to be a good writer. It’s the only way to finish writing a story. Hikers don’t finish a hike by actually walking right? No! They accomplish their long journey by agonizing over taking the first steps and planning every petty detail of their long hike. That’s how a writer should do things too!

BEGINNING A STORY - Terrible Writing Advice

Starting a story is easy! Just drown the reader in so much info dumping and exposition that they can’t possibly escape! Once the reader is stuck, then trap them in a web of flashbacks, in medias res, and prologues. They will never escape then and will be forced to read the rest of your story. Don’t forget to use a mirror to describe how the main character looks!

Big thanks to Audible! Go to http://audible.com/terrible or text Terrible to 500-500 to get started. Making sure your “peaceful” explorers have enough firepower to survive the dangers of space is important. After all, if it’s one thing every science fiction story has shown us is that first contact always goes wrong so you want to be armed with only the latest in military technology. Lasers and shields still won’t ensure your survivability as well as being the protagonist, but it can’t hurt.
