Writing Fantasy 101: Characters — Protagonists

This is the topic I was going to write on last week, but here it is now — the first of two parts on writing characters. Protagonists These are the good guys, the main characters of your story — for that reason, they are generally more…

People don’t like the way that I describe this game if they haven’t played it before, but it’s pretty accurate — it’s like Risk, but fun. We’ve either played games of Risk that have taken hours to play and many feelings have been hurt, or…

Writing Fantasy 101: Plot

Writing Fantasy 101: Plot

I thought about discussing characters in this next post on writing, as I think that is where more people suffer when it comes to writing fiction, and where I tend to struggle as well. But without a good plot, you won’t have a good story 99%…

As you know, Peder and I are big fans of board games. A side effect of this obsession is that we often collect games faster than we can play them, and the time between when we buy a new game and when we play it for the…

X-Men: Apocalypse One Final Trailer?

X-Men: Apocalypse One Final Trailer?

I’m not sure that this is the last trailer, but we get a very cool trailer with a lot of really cool scenes. Definitely have seen some of the footage before, but there was new stuff in there as well. and I’m definitely excited for…

Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5

Why Disney, why? Well, before I really start complaining too much, I would have to say, I have enjoyed the franchise, and I wouldn’t mind seeing it come back. But with Harrison Ford? He’s 73 now, and in 2019, even older than that. How is this going to work?
