Dive into this Fantasy Setting

I am having trouble with this post, so I’m reposting it.

This is a prompt for a fantasy setting. Our descriptions are only limited by our imaginations. But we still have to use our five senses to perceive the setting and then relay those perceptions to the reader.

What are the lines swirling around the woman. Is it mist? Does it feel wet? Is it electrical? Can she feel the charge? Do the lines carry an aroma? Or a stench? Like I said in last week’s post, I should jot down everything that would apply to the five senses as well as how the setting makes the POV character feel. Then I would see how many of those notes I would need for my story.

I’d love to hear how you would dive into this fantasy setting.

Monday Sparks — Writing Prompts: Once upon a time …

princessw1-4582376_1920This month I’m interviewing the five other authors who are in the Christmas anthology with me. So my prompts will reflect the genres they write.

The prompt today is inspired by the Laurie Lucking’s short story “Return to Callidora”, a Christmas fantasy with everything a fairytale needs — a princess, a dragon, a knight, a commoner, and magic.

Once upon a time … is the girl dancing for the dragon? Is she unaware the dragon is above her? What about the two riders on the right? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?
