Are you building a fantasy world and wondering how to add a little spice? How much flavour is too much flavour, and are there spices you should never combine, or should never add to your fantasy soup ever?

Struggling with inventing a language? Or does your character sound lacklustre and boring when he swears? Do your street kids and smugglers sound just like the nobility? Do all your countries speak the same language?

You should stop by my guest post for Thomas A. Knight here on the use of slang, profanity and invented words in fantasy worldbuilding.

Also thanks to L.B. Gale who has kindly highlighted my mythical creature series here. March’s mythical creatures post is set to visit the marvellous creatures of the seas, so be sure to check back to meet silkies and sirens, mermaids and more!
