I’m writing a story where two of my characters are different supernatural creatures. I’m not using traditional lore that currently exists. any tips on how to write supernatural origin/mythology?

Even if you’re not using existing lore/mythology, you may still want to familiarize yourself with what already exists. Not only will this help you figure out what is typical (and how you can do it differently), but it will also give you some ideas for how lore and mythology is typically framed. Once you get an idea of what lore and mythology usually sounds like, it’s easier to make some up on your own. 🙂
