25. Fantastic Writing, Writing Fantasy

March 3rd, 2016

This week we focus on writing fantasy. Kate is a practiced hand and Máire's 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 Máire threatens everyone with the potential of writing ‘Orcrotica’!

 

Presented and produced by Cathy Clarke, Kate Mulholland and Máire Brophy.

Music by Gavin Mulhall
