Long-ish Reads Wednesday

This weekend I will travel to Boston for my sister’s wedding. Accordingly, I’m trying to meet all my deadlines earlier than possible, so I don’t have a lot of time for posting. Instead, I’ll give you a couple of long-ish articles to read.

First, here’s an interview with Jon Spaihts, the writer of “Prometheus.” In it, he talks about storytelling and worldbuilding–two crucial elements of not only his film, but any genre fiction story.

Second, here is a conversation between Helen Lowe and Robin Hobb. This one focuses on fantasy writing and the writing life in general.

So please forgive my laziness, and please enjoy these articles instead.
