I have made a rule for myself, 'I am not going to write a fantasy novel until I have read enough fantasy to become well versed'. I believe that I have done that, but see, I am only 16, so I haven't grown up reading the "classics", instead I have been reading the "fresh" new fantasy. So the 'fresh' fantasy might be doing something to me, but I have no want to start reading the ol' fashioned fantasy novels. The only ones that I want to, or have, read are Donaldson, Hobb, Salvatore. That's it. Is this going to be a problem?
