The muse in charge of my fantasy writing style wears big yellow galoshes and carries a magical umbrella she named Diggle. She is often seen splashing in puddles, throwing glitter at unhappy trolls, and practising being a demigod—she is also building the ultimate flying ship.

...we could think or feel as we wished toward the characters, or as the poet, discounting history, invited us to; we were the poet's guest, his world was his own kingdom, reached, as one of the poems told us, through the 'Ring of Words'...
Nobody believes me when I say that my long book is an attempt to create a world in which a form of language agreeable to my personal aesthetic might seem real. But it is true.

George R.R. Martin
When I write what publishers call ‘fantasy’ I am writing in what I think is the most important tradition of fiction: starting with Homer and up through Shakespeare and Milton, the most important themes to tackle are those of the mythopoeic domain, tales of the body and mind seen through a temperament and a cosmos divorced from current reality so what is said can be more clear.
