Okay, against my better judgment, I had to post this today. After recently returning to blogging after a long hiatus, this is setting a bad precedent, but here goes.
I have been spending some time lately working out ideas I have for some fiction. I'm finding that I neither have much time nor many great ideas, but that hasn't dissuaded me thus far. In searching for some source material on the net, I ran across a useful little site for several other of my faithful blog readers (and aspiring wanna-be fantasy writers like me).
How to write a best-selling fantasy novel.
The hilarious part is that the site is really only partially parody. The fact is, he isn't far off the mark. Look at what sells since Tolkein and you'll find nearly all of it in there. Cracks me up.
