TEXT & MAGIC: Fantastic Fiction at your Fingertips
Three warm up exercises for writing magical fiction
by Don Bosco (www.SuperCoolBooks.com)
Welcome back! I hope my previous posts have been useful.
This week I’ll share three simple warm up exercises for writing fiction.
They can help you stay sharp and inventive when you work on your fantasy stories.
Give them a shot. Feel free to modify them.
After some time, you should find that you can connect ideas faster, visualise your scenes more vividly, and improvise cool plot and character ideas on the fly.
SYNOPSIS: Fantasy author Don Bosco has collaborated with Monsters Under The Bed to launch a new fantasy series called SHERLOCK HONG: YOUNG SEEKER.
Place: Singapore. When: the year 1891. Sherlock Hong is fifteen years old, recently expelled from a boarding school in England for dabbling in alchemy and pursuing magical knowledge. Still, he is eager to prove himself a worthy member of the International Order of Young Seekers. One day, he hears about a local necromancer who intends to bring a dead nightingale back to life. Sherlock's investigation leads him deeper and deeper into the heart of a sinister situation thick with mystery, mischief and magic!

“Hello, and welcome back!
In my last post, you learnt how to set up your story so that you have lots of exciting plot possibilities to explore.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll want to move on and write your first draft. How should your story begin?
With your Hero having a bad day, of course! Here are three steps you can follow to achieve this effect.”
"Geeky, cheeky, magicky is how Don Bosco would introduce himself.
The second mentor to join our League, the father of two is a creator of fantasy entertainment, with a focus on stories and e-books for now. He is the proud author of the Time Talisman series for children, and has written two books from it already! The Secret of Monk’s Hill, meant for kids age 8 and up, is available online. The next book, Newton’s Curse, is on its way! Don also owns his own website and brand, called SuperCoolBooks."
