I am undergoing more training as a writer with my favorite author, Christopher Paolini. Our most recent lesson revolved around the following:
Me: “When it comes to medieval battle tactics, where did you get your inspiration from?”
Paolini: “The Face of Battle,” by John Keegan; “On Combat,” by Dave Grossman; “The Book of the Five Rings,” by Musashi; “The Art of War,” by Sun-Tzu; “Beowulf”; and of course, lots, and lots of fantasy novels.”
This training session gave me more potential sources to seek out for my fantasy book. I cannot tell you how blissful it is to be trained by your role model. It’s like being trained by Clark Gable or Alan Arkin. I will keep you updated on any further developments.
