Endless Resources to Help You Write Better, Faster, and Farther!

Whether you write for school, work, or play, you probably realize that more time goes into making sure that whatever you wrote is correct in every way. That means that you have to spend lots of time editing, proofreading, and checking to make sure that the formatting is correct. For those in school, you are faced with the need to cite your sources appropriately. Those who write for work have to ensure quality or face a dip in profits or revenue. All of which can add up to a very stressful, and mistake prone, time of writing.

But we write for fun, so why do we need to worry about all of this?


The Makings of Great Sci Fi Writing

Star Trek is more than just another science fiction series. In fact, some would say that Trek actually helped define the genre. From the early days of Trek, long before the use of CG or computer rendering, viewers and fans were captivated. Was it the thought of travel through the far reaches of space? Was it the technology, which at the time was unfathomable? Or was it something else that built and helped an entire genre grow?

Each time we sit down to write a Starbase 118 sim, we are delving into our own world within the Star Trek realm. Beyond that, we are writing within the science fiction genre, and we all want to put out the very best writing that we can. As such, we need to know just what makes stories like Star Trek so intriguing.


Five Ways to Really Improve Your Writing Skills

If there is one thing we do a lot of here on Starbase 118, it’s writing. By weaving together long strands of words, each one of us is able to contribute to the collaborative effort that goes into each day, each mission, and each ship. Without words, our characters, and the worlds we’ve created around them are nothing more than thoughts fluttering through our minds.
