Hi all first time poster. Ive written short stories and done creative writing all my life. But ive always remembered a quote, "Write what you'd love to read." Im trying to write a romantic space opera but with a hint of the supernatural. I have world building, planets and creatures, technology and biologies all sorted, even histories with alternate histories for comparison. I just dont know if it all gels together or how to get it to gel better? I realise this post doesnt give much detail, but ive had ideas sniped on me in the past, no offense to members here. What can i do generally or specifically, to ensure a "smooth read" that captivates??
