Anonymous said: I'm writing a high-fantasy story, and one of the main characters gets transported to a whooole new world, and I was wondering if it's too fast-paced to just not write about his life on Earth directly and just start with him being transported and right after that being introduced to that new world by another one of the main characters in the first few pages? I don't want it to feel rushed but it's not really crucial and I'm gonna talk about his past in "kinda-flashbacks" later, so...
Where you start really depends on what is good for the story and on your character.
My advice for most people writing portal fantasies would be to start prior to being transported to the new world because:
- Being transported is the inciting incident that can draw the reader in.
- It establishes the “normal world” for your character, even if it only lasts for the first page.
- Starting in the fantasy world and immediately going in to the Informant Gives Protagonist A Tour part often leads to info dumps. Here is a guide to introducing fantasy worlds without info dumping.
If you do start in the fantasy world, here are my suggestions:
- Do not start immediately after your character is transported. This can lead to a lot of info dumping about the minutes leading up to the transportation.
- Start in an interesting situation. For example, let’s say there’s a world where people from Earth fall through all the time. There are two groups. Group A kidnaps these people and locks them up for whatever reason while Group B tries to find these people before Group A and then they help these people adapt to the new world. We could start with our protagonist having been in a dungeon cell with Group A. Back story will come out later.
