At the beginning of March, I introduced you to a series of articles on “Creating a Magic System” written by my ridiculously talented friend, James Tallett.  This past week James posted the last of the articles in this series.

Do you know what that means??????????

  1. Lisa, great contest! I’m not much of a fantasy writer, but I’ll make an entry. However, it’s so short, I’ll enter it here, and hope you will forward it on. The entry is as follows:

    Looking aghast, Bruce Ironwood slowly exahaled his last breath, frozen like an iceberg as his eyes remained bulging at the worm-like craft swarming all about him, rapidly landing.

    “Why does the world have to end now?!” was his last troubling sentiment to himself as a mass of gruesome worm creatures from hell were almost upon him, their horrid, dagger-like teeth ready to slice him apart.

    You see, Bruce was just about to have his first passion driven novel published by Galaxy Press, leaving him sickened over all the new and many would-be good writing friends he would never be able to meet in cyber space, especially if he were on Facebook.
