"Never take the easy way out a crisis..."

Mes Amis

I'm pretty sure I may have linked to this long ago... but since I just rediscovered it, I figured I'd share again...

Yes, if I'd followed this advice, by now I'd be a best selling fantasy author

"The important thing about an epic fantasy novel is that the reader must be exhausted at the end of it. They must feel that they have overcome as many obstacles in getting through the book as the heroes have in fulfilling the quest. So the book must be as difficult to read as possible."

I'm off to create a fantasy sequence.... each book will be 3,000 pages.

Au revoir
