How Ideas Become Stories

Hello Fiction Lovers!

This week I thought I’d share with you a post that I saw on Fantasy Faction. As you’ve probably guessed it’s about how to turn ideas that you’ve brainstormed into stories with developed plots and characters. The approach the author of the post uses is explained using an example of a floating city and it was very interesting, at least to me, to see that idea develop a lot just within the article. It could also be fun to brainstorm how many other ways that particular idea could have gone after you read the post as well. All in all, I really recommend reading How Ideas Become Stories on Fantasy Faction even if you are more of a reader than a writer. It can be interesting to think about what might of been the core idea that prompted your favorite stories or what could be missing from stories that you didn’t like as much.

Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to comment about how you develop ideas into stories or anything else related to the topic. I hope you all have a good week!

Think of an odd occupation and setting for a character that might not normally be placed together. Pick an age and gender for the character and then develop them, possibly using the occupation and setting as focuses.

Streak of White Hair in Fantasy

Hello Fiction Lovers!

So I just saw this post: A Streak of White Hair: Fantasy or Reality? over on another blog called Thoughts on Fantasy and I wanted to share it with you. The post talks about how likely it would be for the streak of white hair that’s so common in fantasy to actually occur in real life, and what some of the causes might be. It was really interesting to read. I would recommend that you read it as well, because it shows how something small in a story can have an interesting history behind it.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope you all have a good week!
