  15. 15. Tipps for the Future I • Fantasy is the modern form of fairy tales. • So where are the differences? • So, No advance than more characters and more fight! fantasy Fairy tailes There is a hero = There is a hero There is a „bad guy“ = There is a „bad guy“ The good one makes an adventure to defeat the bad one and get the girl = The good one makes an adventure to defeat the bad one and get the girl There are lots of fights etc. There are riddles Third person story = Third person story Many different cinds of heroes One main hero
  16. 16. Tipps for the Future II • It is time to make the next step in evolution. • Fairy tale  Fantasy  Realistic Fantasy • Means: I. Tell the story in many views (also the „bad guy view“) II. The pers • It is time to make the next step in evolution. • Fairy tale  Fantasy  Realistic Fantasy • Means: I. Tell the story in many views (also the „bad guy view“) II. The persons in the Fantasy book shoulden‘t belive in magic III. The fantasy-creatures should be legendary instead of daily life IV. Don‘t be so afraid to let main carecters die (I was never in fear, who will survive in a fantasy book, because actually you see it (Main character: survive; unimportant charecter, who have no reason: die))
  17. 17. Tipps for the Future III V. Seperate from all the standards. VI.Invent new cinds of characters. VII.Make the characters deep. Each one! VIII.Make the reader think he would walk throught a world, where he can take every diversion into a place you haven‘t wrote about yet and find something there. IX.Make long storys without a real ending (give each chapter a „hightlight“ otherwise it will get borring) X. Make the fights reallistic. (One man can defeat many enemys, but shure not more than two dozen) XI.Describe also the ugly things.
  18. 18. Tipps for the Future IV -The Aim You see it‘s much more like in the real world, much more reallistic. But why? It‘s a fantasy-book. Fantasy lifes from unreallism! Thats right and I don‘t want realistic fantasy. But let‘s go at the beginning: You read fantasy actually, because you wish something so interresting could happen to you (Of course without all the hurt and victims etc.). And if the magic is there, but nobudy believes in magic, it could be our world, so maybe you are the hero you wish to be. Once you will find the magic and be the big hero!
