Happy New Year everyone!
Sometime in October I decided to branch out in my creative endeavors (which are quite diverse) and begin writing a novel that I have had in my head for over ten years — before I had even decided that I wanted to pursue a music degree!
I can’t tell you much at this point, for fear of revealing too much of the plot (spoilers and thieves!). But what I can tell you is that it is set in the past, or at least in a setting very like our past that this story could very well have happened. There will be dragons, and mystery, and music will be a part of the story. The book is geared more toward an upper middle school age range but should be fun for all ages.
I would love for my followers to answer these questions:
- What is something you always enjoy in a fantasy novel?
- What is something new or unique you might like to see in a fantasy novel?
- What is something you hate seeing used (or overused) in a fantasy novel?
Having a little bit of input from different perspectives might be a positive factor in this writing process. My goal is to create something that is deeply satisfying to the soul (good guy wins, redemption, etc.) without being predictable, while adding some unique or unusual elements that are not typically seen in stories of this ilk.
