Creating a fictional universe and storyline

  • Learn everything you can about the period/culture you’re trying to portray.
  • Create a believable universe, not a pretty backdrop.
  • Invent creative solutions to your hero’s problems.
  • Give overdone tropes an exciting twist to keep viewers guessing until the end.
  • Avoid info-dumping by maintaining a thread of suspense until the last possible moment.
  • Leave certain elements open to interpretation.
