Quotes to Write By

“I can tell you generally that when treating with magic in fantasy, you have to keep it magical. Many fantasy writers work out these detailed systems, and rules, and I think that’s a mistake. For magic to be effective in literary sense, it has to be unknowable and strange and dangerous, with forces that can’t be predicted or controlled. That makes it, I think much more interesting and evocative. It functions as a symbol or metaphor of all the forces in the universe we don’t understand and maybe never will.”

-George R. R. Martin
