In this week’s Flash Tip, Alida describes verisimilitude, the art of making your fictional world seem real and true. She explains why this is important and uses Robert Scanlon’s science fiction novel, Constellation, as an example.*

You can find Constellation on Amazon here.

Verisimilitude is a close cousin of continuity. Make sure you check out the Continuity 60 Second Writing Tip while you’re here.
