I have a new idea floating around in my head. This one more complex then many others I have had. Don't get me wrong, creating any story or series is difficult, and requires some world building. However, there are some that are more complex then others. Where the back story is as important as what is currently going on, or the way the city or home is set up is imperative to getting your point across.
Yeah I have Torrent's Talents. But the world building there wasn't complex. I created a town, made a bakery and then, outside of each story's individual needs set the scene the same way each time (yes I am aware of this). And yes in Justice for Leanne I created a bit more complex world with the idea of Lesser and Higher Gods, and the portal and realm of Hell. However, Book 2 will be in the same world, no need to move it and in fact I can't.
This however, this is so much more. It is about the color of their hair, their eyes, the direction the house faces to the sun, the abilities they each have and how they help each other. The back story of how their mother couldn't raise them both so they went to two very different homes and how that background helps them. *sighing again* So much to make sure is perfect before I delve into the story.
This is all Denyse Bridger's fault. Well not the story, but the world building. She is working on an amazing new world and she said... "I'm going to create a solid outline firths, then works from there." That is how her best work is done. I thought, "wow, I wonder if I do that if it will make it a better story (or two)." Sure enough I got out the yellow pad and a pen and started building and am still building. Yet I can already see how the stories will be better. So my hat off to my bestest buddy Denyse Bridger who has yet to steer me wrong even when she doesn't know she is steering me.
