Magic Realism, The Class, Part II

One of the tools we used in the magical realism class I took in December was this video, which answers any questions writers might have about how to proceed and what to do as a writer in one minute and twenty-nine seconds.

We also studied "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut. For me, it still doesn't qualify as magical realism, but it is an astounding story that everyone who likes to write and all people who like to read would do well to read carefully. Notice how it executes all the advice in the video! He practices what he preaches. Admirable, and I hope, inspiring for you all.
