Fantasy as a Literary Genre

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. We are learning about the fifth Pillar of Genre, Fiction. Last time, we went over a definition for Horror, and we talked about some examples of how to write it. This week, I want to dive deeper into the next of those subgenres, that of Fantasy, my absolute favorite genre ever. It is also, appropriately, my longest blog to date. I have a lot to say on this topic. Let’s get started.

Year of Drafting

In this post we're going to briefly recap all the things we've learned about writing drafts and about revising them throughout the year. If you've missed any of these lessons, you can find them all linked on the blog.

Brandon Sanderson Drafting Method

Brandon Sanderson is a writer who goes through many revisions. He talks about this over several years during his BYU class lectures on YouTube, and I wanted to distill his process down from several videos, which I will link at least one of them in the description for the podcast and below this blog article for anyone who wants to hear him talk about it more in depth.
