A Persistent Character

My focus this week was supposed just to be on my article sprint, a planned segway between handing off all 75,616 words of my contemporary novel off to other hands and starting a new fiction project.

As you may have heard me talking about on my show or in previous posts, a fantasy story has been nagging at me. Sometimes it’s louder than others. I have never written a high fantasy before, which it seem that these particular ideas fall into that genre, so I really want to take my time with it.

It seems every time I set down to write something else, my mind drifts off into this half-created world that keeps talking to me. The song Evangeline- My Kingdom has been crossing my path in several different playlists I subscribe to on Spotify. Every time I hear this song, I picture a female warrior with waist long chestnut colored braids and an axe. Somehow I get the impression her heart is broken.

I decided, to put my articles down for a minute and listen to this song on repeat for fifteen minutes to see what I could get down and if it would help me focus on my goals.


A land destroyed by war.

Tribes forced into hiding.

Imogen has the will to get it all back.

Honestly, I don’t know if I am more or less focused now, but I’m certainly excited.
