Meetup 009: Fantasy Fiction

s-l1000Hello there, fellow writers! Hope you’re having a magical week, much like the last weekend.

Last weekend, we had one of the most creative and fun meetups ever, with words, magic and drama flying about. One of our┬átheatrical, adorable, versatile writers, Krishanth hosted the meetup and needless to say, I regret my absence at the meetup. Also evidently, I may not be able to give a direct note on the meetup, but I’ve not heard anything but good words about it. So here goes.

Initially, Krishanth delivered a brief talk about the fantasy genre’s two major aspects. One, building of the world and two, the path of the hero. Based on these two ideals, the exercises were constructed.

Exercise:

Objective:
Build an element of a world of your imagination, and describing it with imagery. Create a vivid picture of it for the reader/listener.

The participants were asked to write short stories/write-up(s) hinting and accommodating the objective of the exercise in a subtle yet poignant manner.

Each of the stories thus written were shared and discussed. And in the host’s own words, all the participants had fabulous stories to share. One may say that the weekend would have portrayed the influence of G.R.R.Tolkein, J.K.Rowling, Stephanie Meyer and the like, in the most imaginative and beautiful ways ever!

See you guys, next weekend, when we have more fun, more writing on another interesting theme! As always, please feel free to share your works and feedback on the theme and meetup, in the comments section.

P.S: Watch out for the next weekend, we go binary! ­čÖé
