    Creating a sense of whimsy?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by jordanmcdonald2, Aug 27, 2012.

    so I my story it follows a young boy returning to his child hood home that is been uninhabited for years.

    I want to present the story which is set in the real world like a fantasy with the garden being presented like a forest with obstacles, spiders in his mind seem like monsters etc and the house itself a maze that leads to want he is trying to find.

    do you have an general writing advice to convey this?

    Read some fantasy books - this sounds a little like Spiderwyck - maybe I'm wrong - I'd google Books like Spiderwyck Goodreads and
    you'll probably find a nice list.

    It also sounds a little like shrinking fiction - which you might want to google. There's some good books on characters who
    have shrunk and must battle there way through backyard-forests.
