Join us at The Enchanted Inkpot at http://community.livejournal.com/enchantedinkpot/84375.html to learn from our collective experience on writing Fantasy.

My advice: “… read the classics.

Also, keep it simple. As they say about lying, the closest you stick to reality, the less chance you have to make mistakes. And do your research. Inventing a believable fantasy world is incredibly difficult. You must know how real societies and civilizations have worked over the years to be able to create a coherent one. 

As a coronary of the previous one: If you want to write fantasy to skip the research, don’t.”
