On the Shoulders of Giants, Faeries, Elves, and Dragons: Writing Wondrous Fantasy

This presentation reveals some of the key ideas in my book, Writing Sci-Fi, Fantasy, & Horror For Dummies, to give you what you need to avoid common mistakes while creating stories that captivate audiences. From world-building tips to conjuring a magic system to forming really fantastic (and fantastically real) monsters to using the MMMaM Index of Wonder*, you’ll learn a host of practical tips and techniques to improve your fantasy stories right away.

(And the rumors are true—Ryan once ended a fourteen-month D&D campaign with a single well-placed fireball.)
