Fantasy Writing Community

How to Find a Niche Audience
24-Apr-16   By: Philip Overby

When I set out to write my Splatter Elf stories, the first thought that entered my mind was, “Who in the blue hell is going to read this?” Then I went back to that old nugget of advice, “Write what you know.” Well, I know a great deal about fantasy, schlocky violence, cartoons, and monsters. […]

The Magic of Fantasy — Let’s Love the Unreal
17-Apr-16   By: Featured Author

This article is by Sheila Wisz Ellayn. I joined the wonderful community of Mythic Scribes in November of 2011. During my first weeks here, something surprised me. That was how most of the other members were trying to make their fantasy settings as realistic as possible. I am in love with surreal and impossible settings […]

The Metrics of Writing
10-Apr-16   By: John Wong

When I first started writing, during the pre-internet days, I didn’t have any idea how many words were in a novel, a short story, a novella, etc. I just wrote, but had no idea if I was producing at a good pace or if my stories were a good length. All I knew was after […]

28-Mar-16   By: Nils Ödlund

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings In this article, I want to tell you about one of my favourite pastimes. It’s a […]

How To Edit Your Own Writing
20-Mar-16   By: Featured Author

This article is by Chloe Waters. My high school writing teacher once said, “A writer views his work the way a mother views her child.” A child is the creation of his/her mother as a written piece is the creation of the writer. Writers, especially when their work is freshly written, are unable to see […]

Into the Deep End with Podcasting
13-Mar-16   By: Philip Overby

  If you’ve ever thought about entering the exciting world of podcasting, and it is exciting, then it’s always good to know what you’re getting into. It may not necessarily be for everyone, and when I was first approached to do one I thought, “Uh, really?” There was some apprehension, but it was something I’d […]

How to Develop the Discipline of a Professional Writer
08-Mar-16   By: Brian DeLeonard

There are a lot of articles on the web about the importance of self-discipline for a writer. Putting together my thoughts on the topic for the Article Team, I realize that I have nothing to add to them and no creative spin to filter things through. I have nothing to say on it to the […]

Kishōtenketsu for Beginners – An Introduction to Four Act Story Structure
27-Feb-16   By: Nils Ödlund

Recently we presented a series of articles on three-act structure here on Mythic Scribes. This inspired me to try and write an article about a kind of four act structure known as Kishōtenketsu. It’s used in classical Chinese, Korean, and Japanese narratives, and is often mentioned as an example of a story structure without conflict. […]

Pacing: What Plot and Poker Have in Common
22-Feb-16   By: Codey Amprim

The players gather around a dimly lit table that illuminates the soft haze that carries the musk of stogies and scotch. One by one they sit, only the green felt of the table reflecting from their eyes. The chips are distributed. The stage has been set. The game begins. A total beginner can sit down […]
