The Open Fiction Writing

Paul Yoder

A Medieval Mix of

Low and Dark Fantasy

There’s a curse called boredom. I’m afflicted with it often. Since I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do to get through the mundanity of life has been to jump into a book and into another world.

I’ve been writing about as long as I’ve been reading. Good stories are rare. Visual scene setting is difficult. Living characters in fiction are scarce. The ingredients needed to put together a truly moving piece of fiction is not an easy recipe to pull off.

I’ve attempted a bit of sorcery here with these collected stories on my site. I hope I got the spell just right to warp you into a distant realm. Enjoy a slice of fiction, on the house. Happy reading!
