Miniature Fantasy

My world is still miniature this week as I spend time surrounded by my art supplies and needle tools. Trying to make things the size of a fingertip or smaller take more time that big sculptures. All this creating got me thinking about literary worlds. This week, Alice must have taken a drink of the shrinking potion but good news is that the queen hasn’t ordered any heads to roll. By the way, I’m the queen of my workshop.

This week I want you to get your hands into your story. If that means a grade school type of diorama or stick figure doodles, then go with it. Think about what happens in your fantasy worlds when you super size or shrink everything. My one drawing of a bear riding a speedy bigger than life snail might actually make it into one of my stories. What about riding a giant size bubble bee?

Change what you know and what you normally think of when using in every day real life. Make things that move slow quick. Stretch your imagination and then let the ready feel the wind through their hair as they ride their big red snail. What would happen to your hero if all the plants and animals were giant size? We’ve seen something close to this for those who set their characters in Jurassic worlds.

Let your imagination go crazy today with everything that shouldn’t be possible. Write for 10-15 minutes and then see what this does to your story.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
