The Problem with Magic

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

I discuss The Problem With Magic as it is possible to use magic to solve all evils in a story.  All that achieves is an abrupt and not very satisfactory end to the story.  You wave a wand and that’s it, problem solved, all done.  I suggest two solutions to this issue in my post.  See what you think.

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

Speech Patterns looks at different ways in which to tell characters apart by the way they speak.  You can use slang, whether a character swears or not as well as favourite phrases and words being specific to a character.  More in the post.

FACEBOOK – GENERAL

A longer post than normal tonight (makes up a little for the gaps!).  I discuss returning to blogging, the last two episodes of Doctor Who, what I think about the Missy/Master combo, and share some photos of the beautiful North East of Scotland, where I was recently on holiday.  Temperatures there much easier to cope with!  It’s absolutely baking where I am at the moment, despite the fact it’s past midnight UK time!

FACEBOOK – FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN

I share two ways in which I write flash fiction and how I think technology has helped the genre take off.
