The answer to my current problem... SWORDPUNK!

Yeah, it's a thing. I looked it up.

And I quote: I think the fear that fantasy writers have is that if they don’t reinvent the wheel, they won’t be taken seriously. Like Tad Williams is going to roll up and revoke their Fantasy License. The worlds are there. The tropes are there. It’s all in how you use them.

Swordpunk

1. Eating the pie is more fun than making the pie.

2. No one cares about about your character’s grandfather.

3. Only trot out the Rules on special occasions.

4. Don’t let anyone tell you how to make your art. Make it. Make it scream and bleed, make it shine and shatter. Be true to the moment, to the beauty of it — and make no excuses for putting it on the page.

5. There should always be more minotaurs. Preferable riding on cherry-red mopeds.


Now to break out of this "but what if it doesn't follow the rules" mindset I keep falling into!!!!
