About writing fantasy fictions
So why does the proverbial fantasy fiction need another one? This is because the audience still has an almost unsatiable wish for more tales in this category and more and more up-and-coming writers are tending to use them. Fantasy - whether it' s tradition, epiphany, urban or humour - is a place where the common man can take on a challenge and become exceptionally brave and meaningful.
The fantasy is indeed a consoling place - no matter how perilous the story may be for its people. I was attracted to it because it inspired me with its detailful, extraordinary scenery and its adventurousness. As I got older, I became interested in the historic fiction of Georgette Heyer and C. S. Forester as well as John D. MacDonald and Dorothy Sayers.
These authors may produce different works, but they still create lively settings and extraordinary personalities. These characteristics still attract me to any writer of any kind of fiction. Whilst it is important for all authors to have an insatiable appetite for books, I think it is important not to be too confined. Imagination - old and new - must be studied, of course, but beyond the exploration of magic beings to study other kinds of fiction and classicism.
While I think authors of conventional fantasy need a sound foundation in story, combat strategies, policy, mythology, humanities and the classic, I think authors of the city' s imagination should familiarize themselves with a broad palette of mystery stories, thrills and noirs. Besides the charm of the scenery and the adventures, I also like how open the imagination is to the imagination of strange, extraordinary people.
However, I think that creating sets can be something of a tarmac for novice authors. You design sophisticated stories, storylines, background stories, language and magical system - everything in fact, except a storyline that provides more than a chance sequence of mishaps for the protagonists. As astonishing as it is, the scene of every fantasy tale is only one part.
You also need a powerful, well thought-out storyline and lively character designs that act from comprehensible and appealing motifs. Attitude alone won't take an invention very far. This fantasy fiction formulation therefore deals with the art of writing, with the question of how to first imagine and then assemble a story to offer the reader a marvellous age.
It' designed to work in the field of writing, but also provides a guideline for any prospective author. In addition to the handicraft, it should strengthen the self-confidence of a new author, because if the fiction technique is controlled, the fantasy is free to become more imaginative than ever. In addition to helping authors enhance their storytelling, this textbook shows them what to do when their story gets out of hand.
