No shades of grey as one book closes

I'm a big fan of Terry Pratchett, and I came across this interview with him in the The Guardian book section from last December, about how he starts on a new book as soon he finishes one. I've always harbored dreams of one day writing my own fantasy novel, and it was enlightening to see how the so-called the 'masters' of fantasy writing start their novels.

You can read the full article here: As one book closes, another opens

Also came across this article by David Gemmel on why he is proud to be a fantasy writer. This line was particularly amusing, especially that 'heavens, no!' in the middle:

"J.K. Rowling's novels are not marketed as fantasy - heavens, no! - but as crossover fiction."
