Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this thread and thank you again to all those who post helpful comments. I apologize in advance if I've posted this in the wrong place as well. Please let me know if I have and I'll move it to the appropriate location. Its been awhile since I've been on and now I'm getting back into the swing of things, but I'm sort of in a tight spot. My recent science fiction story really isn't coming together like I thought it would. My biggest problem is describing the setting itself, particularly cities. Its a semi-post apocalyptic world, but the cities are more like colonies now. It also takes place well in the future and none of them are exactly lacking technology except a certain few. I've tried to use visual images for a foundation of what I'm trying to describe, but it just isn't coming together. I feel like I'm going to into the detail of the buildings or not enough, let alone describing the actions going on around the cities when I start off the scene. Anyone have any advice? I'm willing to post a sample if that helps. Thanks again for your time and posts.
