  1. 6 Unexpected Things I've Learned From Writing Fantasy

    I'm working on my first fiction novel. I've written nonfiction for years through my blog and also nonfiction books and manuals. Switching into fiction has been fun and a bit of a learning curve. Here are 6 things I've learned on my journey so far:

    1. Writing fantasy is a lovely escape from the real world. I can take normal day stuff that is inspiring and incorporate it into my story. Or I can take normal day stuff about people who drive me crazy and incorporate it into my characters. ...
  2. The Ways of Witchmen

    Preface: I think I will post my worldbuilding notes as portfolios from hereafter, and as what would be a book in a game format as I prefer to worldbuild from an in-world perspective rather than state facts, and this entry will certainly not be safe for work.

  5. The Tower

    My hand grips this fate stained blade dripping with glee

    And my shadow laughs as all my fearsome enemies flee

    I stand within this starlit dune and breath in my power

    And I prepare my self for the climb of the deadly tower
