Episode 25 - Fantastic Writing, Writing Fantasy

March 3rd, 2016

This week we focus on writing fantasy. Kate is a practiced hand and I’ve just begun, so we go through Melissa Kelly’s Top Eight Rules For Writing Fantasy http://fantasy.fictionfactor.com/articles/fantasyrules.html and talk about what we’ve done, what we have yet to do, and what we feel guilty about not doing.

Kate mentions Austin Kleon’s Show Your Work http://austinkleon.com/show-your-work/ and the Mythcreants http://mythcreants.com/ in her very knowledgeable take on writing fantasy. Cathy keeps us on track, reminding us that much of this is good advice for writing in all genres, and I threaten everyone with the potential of writing ‘Orcrotica’!

Enjoy,

Máire
