Has the Fantasy Literature Genre Become Stagnant?
07-Feb-16   By: Featured Author

This article is by Nicholas Cockayne. Sadly the answer would seem to be, yes. Firstly, it is worth stating that the fantasy genre gets a lot of bad press for having no literary value, a totally untrue assertion. Fantasy literature is almost unrivalled in its ability to transport the reader to different worlds of imagination, […]

How to Stop Writing – Beating Writer’s Fatigue
31-Jan-16   By: Featured Author

This article is by E.L. Skip Knox. I don’t get writers block, but I do get something that’s just about as bad. Writer’s fatigue, sometimes simply known as burnout. I can write, that’s not a problem. But sometimes I get tired. I get more than tired, I get weary. Writing becomes a burden. I write […]

Big Picture Story Structure – Part 3: Seven-Point Plot Structure
24-Jan-16   By: John Wong

This is the third part of a three-part series on story structure. The first part began a discussion on the Three-Act Structure. The second part continued that discussion. This third part explores Seven-Point Story Structure and plot weaving. So where were we? Oh yes, we had just finished breaking down Star Wars into the key […]

Big Picture Story Structure – Part 2: Three-Act Structure
16-Jan-16   By: John Wong

This is the second part of a three-part series on story structure. The first part began a discussion on the Three-Act Structure.  This part continues that discussion.  Part three will discuss Seven-Point Story Structure and plot weaving. When I last left you, I had just addressed breaking into Act-2. Now, it’s on to Act-2 and […]

Big Picture Story Structure – Part 1: Three-Act Structure
10-Jan-16   By: John Wong

Before I start, I want to let you know in order to do this subject justice, I need a lot more space than one article is normally allotted. So, it’s divided into three parts. The first part begins a discussion on the Three-Act Structure, the second part will finish it off before we move on […]

Speaking Without Words – Writing Body Language
13-Dec-15   By: Nils Ödlund

When you’re watching a movie, you can see the actors as they deliver their lines. You can see the expressions they make, and you can hear their tone of voice. Seeing them talk tells you a lot more about what they’re saying than just the words they’re using. When you’re reading a text, you only […]

Swordplay for Fantasy Writers
05-Dec-15   By: A. Howitt

The clash of blades, sparks flying. The barbarian with his twenty-pound two-handed sword, swinging for your head. The epic showdown with acrobatics… now that’s fantasy. No, like, seriously a fantasy. And this article isn’t about any of those things. It’s about swordplay in a realistic situation, using familiar physics and historical inspiration. We write fantasy, […]

In Defense of Escapism and the Themes of Fantasy
29-Nov-15   By: Brian DeLeonard

The great journey, the valiant quest, the ongoing war between good and evil, the “chosen one” who by magic rises above peasantry and poverty to a place of heroism – these are the clichés of fantasy, and I will not defend them as clichés. But they also explore fantasy’s greatest themes. They explore the themes […]

Write More, Care Less?
21-Nov-15   By: Philip Overby

With November comes NaNoWriMo and by now many people are either realizing: a. they might have something worth salvaging. b. they have a steaming pile of crap. c. a and b d. none of the above I came to the conclusion a couple of years ago that having a steaming pile of crap can be […]

The Griffin: Call it a Chimera Comeback
15-Nov-15   By: Codey Amprim

Being naturally drawn to mythology and the Reniassance Festival as a wee kiddo really paved the way for my geekiness as an adult (no way, really?). And it was only a matter of time before I laid my eyes upon this fantastic creature. At first, I wasn’t sure what it was, but upon the shields […]
