I have been asked many times whether I have any requirements when it comes to writing or blogging. In other words, do I need to know any specific grammar rules or have a specific spelling/ grammar checker to be able to write? These are difficult questions to answer honestly, because you’re not going to be able to answer them with 100%.
The reality is, most authors are going to have some requirements for their genre. Even if youre not writing a “fantasy” novel, you will likely need a certain level of knowledge to write in that genre. The genre specific knowledge isn’t something that just applies to your own genre. It can apply to writing in general, but writing in a particular genre is a very specific set of skills that you either have or you dont.
I know that I can be a bit of a nitpicker, but some genres of literature are a little more specific than others. I would say that fantasy, science fiction, horror, suspense, and many other genres are more difficult for a novice writer to write. The thing is that most authors do not have a problem writing fantasy. If you have a problem writing fantasy, you can always write it in a different genre.
Science fiction or fantasy are two different worlds, but they are very much alike in that they have a very specific way of setting up characters and events. In science fiction, the point of view is the protagonist, and in fantasy the point of view is the author. If you are not comfortable with a particular genre, don’t start there. You will probably find a way to make it work on your own, but that’s not the same as not liking the genre at all.
I can understand if you feel the need to write in a genre you aren’t really interested in, but you can make your story stand out with the proper genre. It’s not very hard to write a science fiction story that is just about a scientist who can only be killed by his own invention. It’s not hard to write a fantasy that has a bunch of weird things happening to two people who are both scientists. It’s just a matter of being able to make it work.
Some genre writers, like Elon Gpa, are able to write in a genre that does not suit their tastes. Their story may be about the guy who can only die by the act of making his own invention, but it may also be about the guy who can only die by the act of killing his wife.
I think its great that game authors are trying to break genre boundaries, and that is great. But I also think that this is part of the problem. While I do not believe that game authors should have to be able to make their own inventions, I do think that the story of Elon Gpa is really, really strange. I mean, he is a scientist. Its really odd that Elon would use his own invention to kill his own wife, but its not really his invention.
It is actually, at least in the trailer, that he is still in his 50’s. The fact that he is still alive is a testament to how weird the story is. He is not a super-intellect, a genius, or even a very smart man. He is what I would consider a “normal” guy.
The trailer is definitely weird, but I think it’s really cool. That being said, I don’t think the story is actually that weird. It really is like he was a good guy, who is not quite as smart as he wants to be, but who did have an IQ that was pretty good when he was a kid. He was really good at school work, and he did well in school and got a good education which he wanted to continue.
Well, he just woke up, so he could be a decent guy or he could be a genius and still be a completely incompetent person who just had a really good IQ. I see your point but it wouldnt make him a good person if he was a genius. He would still be a failure.
