  1. David Farland is simply a master at writing fantasy novels. His Runelords series is positively brilliant. His guidance to authors is invaluable. What a great video. 📚

  2. "Part of capturing an audience is to convince them that they are in the hands of a really good writer."
    He said that so well. That is why we edit, and why we try to get out of our own way, when we look at what we have to make better.
