Fantasy Is Hard Work

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 8, 2017


art by yours truly

It is no secret that as an artist, it is prose that I’m professional at rather than painting/drawing. And historical fiction aside, what I’m told I write quite well is fantasy. So, for a long time I have wanted to talk about writing ...
