Fantasy writers often ask:
“How far outside the box can I go?”
The thing I love about fantasy is that there is no box to contain it. That’s why there are so many wonderful and exciting sub-genres of fantasy. It just can’t be contained!
BUT – you must have rules to define the reality you are creating and you must stick to them. If you break any of the laws of reality you established, you need to have a darn good explanation. Then, you need to explain it to the reader in a way that makes them accept it as logic. Otherwise, you create a disbelief with the readers. This means they won’t trust you or your story any more.
