Anonymous asked: How do I explain something scientifically? (I write sci-fi but I'm having trouble with a work in which Venus is now terraformed) I would like to make it hard sci-fi but I can't make something belivable. Also, how do I make something (speaking about future) to look normal or common? Thanks.

characterandwritinghelp:

Making something look normal or common is less about terminology or how you initially describe it and more about how you include it. If you want hover vehicles to be seen as a normal part of the world, show them in everyday situations: kids on their way to school who are racing each other on hoverboards, a hover-scooter lying on someone’s lawn while it recharges on a faded cord, special parking for hovercars built into the parking lots alongside bike racks/”normal” car spaces/etc. Only give it enough special treatment in description to make sure the audience knows what it is. Once it has been established, use it as a facet of the world rather than the center of attention. It’s a normal part of the world and does not get special attention anymore (or ever, depending on how you handle exposition).

As far as describing things, I have some links I think you will like:

Now remember people, National Coming Out Day is on its way. If you “come out” on facebook as straight and/or cis, an ally, a brony, a fucking whovian, or anything other than a marginalized sexual orientation and/or gender identity, I will ram my boot so far up your ass you’ll be tasting Vans for weeks.

why does everyone look so surprised when i say the reason for cutting my hair short is the hot weather, what were u expecting “i need to take my father’s place in war and the chinese army won’t accept women” ???

So what you’re saying is that you’re not going to help defend China from the Huns…?
