This is the first post of what I expect to be a long-running, but not necessarily frequent blog (my targeted minimum frequency is monthly), on fantasy writing, both for enjoyment and craft. I have been writing for a couple of years, have loved fantasy writing my whole life, and think that I have something to offer both readers of fantasy (ie. my forthcoming books, which shouldn’t be in the far future) and writers of fantasy, in discussion of craft. Better technique can only make us better writers.
And I’m sure there’ll be some randomness along the way.
Any artwork on the site is mine, and copyright (feel free to link to it), but this blog will be more about writing craft than creating fantasy art. But hopefully the art will provide some enjoyment as well, maybe draws some more attention to the site, and will come in handy to the extent that I self publish–something I already have in mind for an older completed manuscript that didn’t catch agent attention, but that I still like the bones of. So you may see some fantasy cover artwork, and possibly the process thereof.
I also have another manuscript in final stages of editing, that will reach for the golden ring of traditional publishing. So we may chatter about that on and off, although I am not expecting to necessarily share the gritty details of the agent search, when I embark on it.
So welcome to the site, pull up a seat, and add to the discussion (politely, of course, please). I look forward to meeting you.
