Chapter 2 “Genres” – Section 10 “Dystopia”
With Links to Supplementary Material
From strange organizations that run the world to giant death games of various sorts, the dystopian genre has been very popular as of late. Not that it hasn't been around for a while, it's just recently surged in popularity because of “The Hunger Games.” As such, there is little tradition and so little thought into the cliches, mistakes, and trends that seem to be overtaking the genre—which is what we will be looking at, today.
Tip 1: Think about what makes Dystopian Fiction so appealing.
Usually, the answer to this is that you are creating an evil and creative world, where the villains have complete control and the heroes have no choice but to rebel in the most d

Chapter 5 “Characters” – Section 2 “Protagonists”
“Plot is people. Human emotions and desires founded on the realities of life, working at cross purposes, getting hotter and fiercer as they strike against each other until finally there’s an explosion—that’s Plot.”
—Leigh Brackett
Apart from Primary and Secondary Protagonists, there are many other different protagonist characters-types that can drive a story—ranging from heroes, to villains, to antiheroes, to just normal people. Today, I'm going to discuss what universal attributes make a great protagonist that will drive your story forward, as well as how to define and craft this character in a way that gives them a

Writing Tips: Beginner's Guide to Avoiding Cliches
One of the biggest questions I tend to get from writers is how to avoid making their work cliche. I can't give you an upfront answer to that because the answer depends largely on what you're doing and how you're doing it. And let me start by saying this: the greatest writer on earth can make any cliche work. Think about it: How to Train Your Dragon isn't exactly an original movie by any stretch, but it's outstanding because of the way that it uses the tropes that have dragged down other similar movies in horrible ways. The best way to figure out what would be cliche is to read a ton of whatever is in your genre/plot type (and by "read" I mean read books, comic books, manuals, RPG guide books, watch television shows and movies, listen to music etc).
For example, if you're I dunno, writing a series about kids ruling the world or making their own rules you're going to check out a lot in that medium. You'll soon figure out that most of them are crapsack dystopias and figure out that the ar

Writing Tips: Avoiding Bad Worldbuilding
One of the first mistakes that a writer of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, or supernatural horror) makes is front-loading every little bit of information of their world that they painstakingly made. One of the last mistakes that a writer of speculative fiction makes is giving stupid details of their world, unknowingly retconing things, and explaining things that don't need explaining because this usually ends their career or irreparably damages a franchise. Today's lesson is about "bad worldbuilding" because the hardest part of actually creating a fictional world is giving too much detail.
This one is going to be different for different types of media. For example, most television shows have a build-as-you-go kind of feel (think Fairly Odd Parents), while a series of novels is usually planned out from the beginning. As an aside, if you're planning out an entire series of novels, make sure that at least the very first one can stand completely on its own to the point where
