Food for Writing – Modern Fantasy

Writing modern fantasy requires a savoury preparation that has the same basis as high fantasy, but with its own twist and form. So, to make a modern fantasy dinner, you’ll need the same meat, but you’re going to prepare it in a different way. The end result might not be that unique, however, even for a brief moment, it’s going to be amazing for people’s senses. Continue reading “Food for Writing – Modern Fantasy”

It’s simple to make, yet very satisfying. You might wonder why I didn’t give literary fiction something more wholesome or sophisticated perhaps. That’s because I truly think that literary fiction should be familiar, but at the same time, a bit heavy to digest until you get used to it, just like life this genre is supposed to depict. It’s simple to make, but accomplishes a lot once it’s ready to be served. Continue reading “Food for Writing – Literary Fiction”
