Hi, I'm attempting to write a fantasy novel for the first time. I'm stuck on how to describe the time. It's a fantasy plot with multiple kingdoms in it. Sort of similar to a Lord of the Rings atmosphere. Any suggestions on how to start off the story so the reader not only understands the setting is that of fantasy and mystical surroundings but they also feel as if they are there. Also, should I start the story describing the time this story is set in, or start with describing the first kingdom that is first in the story? Thank you!
