The House of the Rising Sun - as performed by old computer parts


What does it say about me that the first time I started watching this, I nearly died laughing?

If you ever decide to write fantasy

First write the story/book.
Second buy and read Diana Wynne Jones' book "The Tough Guide to Fantasyland"
Third now see how many fantasy conventions you've followed
  • Map
  • Colour coding
  • Food
  • Animals
  • Various types of races/species met
I'd read the book before writing a second fantasy novel so every time my poor characters ate stew - I laughed.
