I generally write fantasy for the simple reason that I love reading fantasy, and normally that works out great. Recently though, I've run into a couple of issues regarding the time period I want the story to be set in. I've noticed that most fantasy stories are set in a period where swords and bows are the weapons of choice, and I usually like this setting. However, especially when describing parts of a city or maybe just the look of a house, I find I'm having trouble envisioning what a city would look and feel like in medieval times. I feel it would detract heavily from a story if my cities felt like the urban monsters of today rather than what you feel a medieval city should feel like. I hope I made my question somewhat clear!
