Did you ever wonder how David Eddings, Terry Brooks, Orson Scott Card, Stephen King, Piers Anthony, or J. R. R. Tolkien created their worlds? These and other successful fantasy writers found the magic to create realistic fantasy worlds, but they didn’t find it in a book of spells. I have been living in a fantasy world my entire life, and don’t know how to get out of it. It started when I was little. Actually, I don’t know when it started, as I’ve been doing this as long as I can remember. I’d stare out into space & create a fantasy world, full of characters that were very real to me. It started with fairies, princesses, and other fantastical things. Then, as I got older, it developed, into lifelike human beings, with histories and well-developed stories. I can do this for hours and hours at any point of time. It was an escape, which seemed harmless.
