A Jaunt Into the Fantastic

I have decided on the novel I will write for NaNoWriMo.

Fantasy.

Working title: The Dragon Curse.

My very first journey into the realms of fantasy. OK, not the first. I have, of course, read fantasy. However, I don't read much in this genre. I don't care much for the magic that is so often a part of it.

My story is a large dose of "medieval" fantasy with a smidgen of science-fiction. Is that acceptable, I wonder? Legends, dragons, and mutations, oh my!

Is it possible to have a medieval-like fantasy with a healthy dose of technological advancement? This is what I will explore in my NaNo project. How to combine the two in a "believable" mix. We'll see what happens...

Good luck with your WIP and NaNo. I've never attempted fantasy and wouldn't know where to begin.

Thank you, Amy! I'm not exactly sure why I'm so interested in fantasy. I've always liked it. I love Tara K Harper's Wolfwalker series. Absolutely fascinating!

It'll be fascinating to see how you combine mediaeval and technological. I look forward to it

Good luck Jamie! I love fantasy and I think dragons make great characters. It will be interesting to see how dragons and technology will interact!
