Fun, writing and dragons well I am a fantasy writer after all. One of the greatest things about being able to write a story is enjoying it even when it becomes serious. I am not talking about making every scene humorous but a little humour every now and then would not go astray. I am talking about a light moment even a heavy scene can use one of these. Or the moment when you get so enthralled with what is happening that you simply run with it because you cannot wait to get to the end of the scene.
That level of enthusiasm will reflect in your writing it is like talking on the phone when someone cannot see your facial expression so they are listening really intently to your voice. If you get bored part way through the conversation it shows, I am completely guilty of this. Yes, that point where you start to trail off and get bored well don’t forget if you get bored it shows.
Now dragons, wonderful creatures that have a tendency to do their own thing and let you know when they are annoyed. Oh I could have so much fun here and I have, it is much easier to write about something you love which is why I chose fantasy. The genre that kept me reading all night and I did not have a care in the world about the time.
My point is enjoy what you write and do not be afraid to write that scene you had always wanted to read but could not find. Or when you did it did not work out the way you expected because you were busy getting carried away with your own imagination.
This is where I admit to painting a dragon on the ceiling of my room that filled half the space yes it was the length of my room. It was the first thing I saw when I went to sleep and in the morning when I woke up. So when I finally had the chance to write about dragons I intended to have as much fun as I could and enjoy every moment. That is what I like about writing when the story comes to life and I get so carried away I forget what the time is.
