Creating your own planet?

I usually write alternative History based on earth so this is all new to me. I wanted some help with creating your own planet. Not as in society and magic but more the physics side of it like what gases on the planet, terrain, moons, climate. I wasn't good at physics at school so could anyone suggest ways I can figure this stuff out. Any tutorials on planning this stuff? I haven't been able to find one that really covers what I'm looking for. I'm reading some articles now. But it's a bit over my head. Would it be better to just make it very similar to earth and just move on?

You must, must write about what you know. So if you can not create what you are trying to do on your own, then perhaps you should rethink what you can do.It does sound like it is something that is beyond your scope at the moment. Good luck

Why do we have a rating system for movies, video games and TV but not books?


If you think there should be one, create it. Think it through and put it out there. That is how changes are made, one person at a time. Also most books stores do separate adult reading from teen or children reading. The trouble is with a system as above, who gets to decide what is violent and what is explicit.
Reading reviews of a book would help you, Amazon has reviews as well as Goodreads.

I like writing but I want to be someone cool when I grow up?


You sound like a young person so I will just tell you how my life went. When I was young, I wanted to be an astronaut. Going into space was so new and exciting when I was young. Over the years, my opinion changed multiple times. I started off at university to get a degree in accounting and ended up with multiple degrees in Electrical Engineering.
Enjoy being young. Investigate all possible things to do as an adult. You will find something that will be your passion. You will know when you find it.
Good luck.
Semper Fi,

Why is Shakespeare so popular?


Shakespeare's enduring popularity can be attributed to the breadth of genres he covered, the integration of his work into academia and the complexity and universality of his stories. Other popular writers cover comedies, histories or fairy tales, but Shakespeare's complete bibliography includes every type of character and story imaginable, adapted to modern audiences throughout history.

I'm writing a story based around a magical academy, does it sound too Harry Potter-y?


Judging by the information you included, I would say that (even if it bears some resemblance to Harry Potter) your world is unique to your own style. You said it yourself, too, houses are common in English schools. Not to mention the fact that schools of magic are a common theme in fiction itself.

Take "Little Witch Academia", for example. It's a magic school, there's witches and quills and all that, but the story is unique enough to be its own thing. As long as you put your own ideas into the story, it will be unique despite whatever it might remind people of. And even if it does remind people of Harry Potter, it could work to your advantage. If a scene is whimsical, it might bring back that feeling of going to Hogwarts for the first time, except the feeling is new because your story is also new.

Someone once said "good artists borrow, great artists steal". No matter what, you're going to find inspiration in things you like, it just happens, but the fact that you've taken that inspiration to put into your own world is great! Hope this helps!

What are the best 10 books youve read?


The Last Unicorn - Peter S Beagle
Hear me out. I know this one sounds childish, but the way Beagle describes the settings and atmosphere in this book is honestly what makes it my favorite. It's almost like Tolkien decided to write a kid's book, or C.S. Lewis wanted to try something a bit different. The detail in each paragraph lends to great worldbuilding and characters. The plot can seem weak at times, but there's always a subtle wisdom that shines through.

Anthem - Ayn Rand
A young man invents electricity in a world where creativity and individualism is banned. Not to mention, the only Ayn Rand novel I can stomach.
The entire a-side of my favorite Rush album, 2112, is loosely based on this book.

Dracula - Bram Stoker
The vampire one, I don't think I even need to introduce it.
Be warned, the best action sequences of this one are in the first few chapters, it tends to slow down for a bit in the middle, but it picks itself up when it needs it.

The Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer
I kind of cheated because this is a series, but imagine Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White in the world of Star Wars. It sounded ridiculous to me until I gave it a shot, and it was well worth it. Fun characters, great action and pacing, well worth a read.

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
The best way I can describe this one is a post-apocalyptic, Will Wonka-based love letter to the 80's. Really fun book if you're into anything 80's or video gaming.

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
A clever delve into classism and protocols of Edwardian England, with a romantic-based plot that I honestly get really into. I actually couldn't read past the first page of this when I was a kid, but now that I can actually understand the language of the time, it holds up great. That said, I can admit it's a bit more of a feminine book.

Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan
Greek mythology meets Harry Potter and it's pretty incredible. I'll openly admit that I'm including this one on the list out of pure nostalgia, but I find myself re-reading it pretty often.

Holes - Louis Sachar
Stanley Yelnats gets framed for stealing a famous basketball player's shoes, and goes to a reformatory camp for juvenile delinquents. The plot kicks off from there, and the subplot keeps up with it every step of the way. Not to mention, this has one of the closest book-to-movie adaptations I've ever seen (but I've got a soft spot for Sigourney Weaver).

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick
This is definitely the darkest book on this list, seeing how it's a non-fiction book about North Korean defectors. I had to read this one for a history class, but about two chapters in, I was reading ahead of the class in my spare time. Imagine, if you will, reading Orwell's 1984, but knowing every word in it takes place in your reality. It's borderline horror, but an eye-opener all the same. Not for kids in the very least.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
A hilarious space opera/buddy cop story, delightfully quirky. I'll admit, I've only read the first in the series, but I've got every intention to finish said series someday. The movie adaptation starring Martin Freeman also happens to be one of my favorite comedies.
