“To me, it’s more realistic to believe that with effort, perseverance and a bit of luck dreams can come true.”
Less the Zen of writing fantasies than the Chilton.
“The universe doesn’t abide vacuums and has a particular dislike for plans.”
A brief recapitulation how Michael and Robin Sullivan wrote a publisher-ready fantasy novel in about sixty days. (A good novel, I might add. See my review.) The reader of fictions in general and fantasies in particular may be entertained; the writer of fiction and fantasy will be captivated. This isn’t how everyone does it, but it’s a look behind the curtain. For that it’s worth the price.
“What had life when first conceived, ca be reduced to a beaten corpse if you [rewrite] it enough times.”
I hope Robin does write that book about her successful Kickstarter campaign.
“… I still feel guilty. I feel like I’m getting away with something. Decades of conditioning are hard to break.”
The price is right.
“I don’t pander to my readers, but rather I consider what I would want to read.”
