If I and My Cousins are Superheroes: Chapter 1, Page 17
We later discover that Contempro is only a virtual world. We never left Earth. We are still on the underground spaceship where I gathered my team to receive the comprehensive instruction of our mission. We find out from the spaceship’s computer that an alien invasion is soon to be launched to our world.
We fight our invaders which are led by Emperor Galaxus. They are superhumans with superpowers a thousand times more advanced than what we have in on Earth. It is a difficult battle to win. There are many casualties in this intergalactic war. In the end, justice has still prevailed. The invaders are defeated. Peace is restored to our world as a new global way of life is born. I discover ruins that can reveal the true ancestry of our family. However this triumph is not possible without sacrifices. We lost Sophia to the war.
Fifth entry is Make it believable. The author says that a novel must transcend its fictional reputation. Yes, fiction is fiction. It is not real. But a writer can convince readers to believe the story. To think that the events are true and they really happened. A writer’s imagination has to be realistic. To employ realism, a writer must weave his story from the laws of the universe, the principles of society, the foundations of human cultures, and the sincerity of people’s experiences.
I will try my best to make my fiction as realistic as possible. I guess I need to buy and read several books. Perhaps, I will read on the different branches of science since the fiction I am planning to write is a science fiction. I might read on social studies. It can help. I mean, I will understand more human society. It will be very helpful to understand how society works so you can depict better an individual person.
