WHO MAKES THE RULES?

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Who Makes the Rules? is one of those apparently simple questions that can generate lots of answers.  I discuss why in the post and ask about conventions and traditions in your fictional world and what happens to those that flout them.  Plenty of story ideas there!

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

How to Spot a Writer is one of my more lighthearted posts.  I list 10 things to look for and admit I’m guilty of most of them.  How many are you guilty of and can you add to the list?

CHANDLER’S FORD TODAY

Last week’s post on Classic Books has one problem with it in that the topic almost inevitably leads to the article being biased in favour of fiction.  So I redress the balance with this week’s post – Fiction -v- Non-Fiction?  No Contest!

MIRACLES TAKE A LITTLE LONGER…

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Miracles Take a Little Longer discusses simple miracles (two rival species ending that rivalry) and more complicated ones (a dictatorship becomes a democracy for example).  What would count as a miracle in your fictional world?  What are the chances of it happening and would it be welcomed even if it did?

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

Missing Information discusses what data could be deliberately withheld from your characters and the impact on them when they realise they have been kept in the dark.  The missing information has to be crucial to your characters (both to those withholding it and those who need it) so what would motivate them here?

CHANDLER’S FORD TODAY

I love discussing books on CFT as these posts usually generate comments and a good online discussion takes place.  I discuss Classic Books this week and ask what makes a classic book and lists my Top 10.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, I discuss my CFT post here tonight.
