Why magic needs to have rules - Simon K Jones

If you’re writing genre fiction you need to get your magic spells, super powers and future technology defined and understood.

I just published a new writing tips blog post in which I focus on how rules and limitations can really enhance your storytelling, especially if you’re working in science fiction or fantasy genres.

I go through a bunch of examples including UBER by Kieron Gillen (left), The Power by Naomi Alderman, Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars books, The Last Jedi and more.
