It’s All in the Details

One might argue that the world we write in, and the world our characters live in, is pure fiction, but the reality of it is that it all rests in the details that you provide. Think about it; a good book always sets the scene and provides enough pertinent detail of the characters in question to give readers the ability to paint pictures and see images in their minds. Almost like a movie, the details allow entire scenes to play out and characters to come to life, which can not only inspire, but can leave a reader wanting more.

Since the story we weave here at Starbase 118 is perpetual, that’s just the kind of reaction we want. What’s that mean? It means that we can’t afford to ignore or leave the details out of things, especially if we are trying to help others learn what it means to be a part of one of the epic stories we create. But figuring out the details, and what details are important can be difficult. For those of us who don’t quite consider ourselves writers, it can seem almost impossible. Thankfully, this article on Details can help you find just what you need when you want to create a real world that pops out and evokes imagination and emotion in your readers. Keep this advice in mind and you will soon see the difference that including these details can make in your sims.
