Mythcreants Invasion

September 2018

September is that brief time of year when it’s acceptable to have fall-themed decoration without any Halloween paraphernalia. It’sĀ also the month for social justice, it seems. All three most popular posts this month are all of that honorable SJW vintage. It’s a socially conscious extravaganza!

If you’re looking for lighter fare, we have the latest installment of our ever popular Lessons From Bad Writing series. We finish the month with a podcast about how worldbuilding can get in the way of the plot and vice versa. We hope it makes for good listening as the summer heat finally starts to fade and the leaves show us there full range of colors.
