I didn’t know that as far as writing fantasy first and then poetry. I find that writing poetry is easier then writing a story. I think if I had started with fantasy first I probably would not of wanted to continue to write! I have more problems with writing story’s because I don’t get what it means to show don’t tell and know one seems to be able to explain it to me and then my stories have a tendency to sound silly and they are mostly dialogue. I have realized that it is easier to start out with a short story and plan out either the first half of or all of the story. Most of my stories sound better at the beginning and sound worse as the story progresses.
