In this six-week course, you will learn what separates fantasy fiction from other types of fiction.

You'll learn how to outline your book, come up with a theme, and commit to actually writing. You will learn how to revise and edit so that when you complete it, your book will essentially be a finished product.

Short stories can be great fun to write, but sometimes tough to get the knack of. For anyone who wants to try their luck at this form, I’ve come up with a list of useful tips to help you get started.

One reason that short stories fail is the writer tries to cram too much into it. A short story is a separate form of writing, not just a mini novel. Ideally you want a strong central theme or idea and the entire story should revolve around that. Don’t go off on tangents or try to add subplots and other extra details, every word should bring you to the goal of the piece.

Having an idea of how long you want the story to be will help you plan. If you’re submitting it for a completion the organisers will often set a specific limit that cannot be exceeded. The word count will determine what you can accomplish with the story and might influence the style of writing. A short story around 1500 words might follow the “punchline” format, with a slow build-up through the narrative and ending in a sudden twist. A longer piece has the time for more development and can allow the author to write more complex tales.

I’ve written a lot of blog posts about world building over the years. They were solutions to problems I had or that stemmed from conversations with other writers. Topics range from how to start off world building, how to make a fantasy map, and tips to create cultures to people words.

Some writers describe the world almost as another character in the story. Heck, I’ve read novels where the world WAS another character in the story! Vivid, realistic, amazing worlds are a part of reader’s expectations for the genre. They need places of indescribably beauty that you must somehow describe to readers. They need terrors, cities, forests, mystery, magic … and amid it all a story must flow like a river whose course you can only guess at.

What’s a fantasy story without a truly amazing weapon? The kind of no-holds-barred cool armament that inspires your reader to swing their arms round in the privacy of their home, imagining they’re actually getting to wield the ‘one sword’, ‘enchanted bow’ or ‘pot-bellied-pig cannon’ of their dreams? Nothing, that’s what, which is why in this article I’ll be talking about how you can set about picking the right weapons for your fantasy characters and, once you have, how you can get readers to obsess over them.

I’ll take a look at how you can invent new weapons that work for your story and how drawbacks and limits can make a weapon feel truly epic. Before that, though, it’s time to talk about what your character’s weapon says about their personality.

Humans love to personify items. We name our cars, swear at our computers and, if a child falls down, it’s not unusual to see their parent smacking the pavement in a show of retaliation. Weapons are no exception, and even readers who have only ever encountered weaponry in fiction will have a definite idea about the ‘personality’ that weapons possess.
