I am a lover writing and fantasy. The thing (I have found) that fuels any story, first starts with a question. One question I posed myself became the formation of my book, it was;
WHAT IF the stones from the 'Dark Tower' series (merlyns rainbow) were found in our world? How would that change/alter what we already have such as cell phones they are already a way to connect us and the faster we get eventually 'tech' will advance into 'smart suits' then someone might just 'pop' into the other world, dimension, timeline..you can do the math (I.E. timetravel becomes a byproduct of a 'utopian' society..), and I'm sure your's is different if you ever think about it.
That's just where I went with it, there are so many other ways an idea can happen. Just ask one question and the rest will follow.
I'm happy to say that (in my mind) Fantasy is such an old school way, such an ancient way, that it's now become the new 'new. Within the human psyche, it's buried. Knowledge of the past, it's buried within all of us, we all want to experience it again, to learn. The other side of reality, because we have , in dreams. We all try to make sense of this world. Enough with the ranting. I purpose the question;
What question began YOUR story?
