FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
I look at what not to do at a social gathering in a magical world in tonight’s post. This kind of advice is always useful I feel!
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
Having had a family event today where lots of wonderful conversations took place (always a sign of a good event that!), I thought I would write about this topic for tonight’s post. What kind of events are celebrated in your fictional world, especially if you write fantasy and/or science fiction? Are there groups in/on/under your world who are forbidden to talk to one another and does anyone break that taboo? You can see where the Romeo and Juliet plot could come from here but there are other stories to be had from this. Over to you!
I discuss the joys of being interviewed on my author page tonight! I am currently working my way through some wonderful questions put to me by fellow scribe, Jacci Gooding, and am really enjoying doing this. I love reading and indeed conducting writer interviews. (See Chandler’s Ford Today for some posts where I’ve interviewed local writers, writers known to me through local conferences which is where I met Jacci, and other writers who have become small publishers). Why do I love writer interviews regardless of what side of the fence I am on? I always learn something that either encourages me with my own writing or I pick up tips to help me improve said writing. And that can only be a good thing.
