  1. This is a rough draft and incomplete. I am simply posting to share what I have so far.

    Working Title

    MEMOIRS OF AN EGYPTIAN QUEEN

    Working Genre(s)

    HISTORY
    FICTION

    Working Point of View Specification:

    THIRD PERSON

    High Concept Blurb:

    HATSHEPSUT WANTS TO MARRY THUTMOSE II BECAUSE SHE IS MOTIVATED TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR EGYPT, BUT SHE FACES CONFLICT BECAUSE THEY ARE SIBLINGS.

    Story Sparks:

    BEGINNING-
    PHAROAH DIES SO HATSHEPSUT AND THUTMOSE II ARE FORCED TO GET MARRIED SOONER THAN ANTICIPATED.

    MIDDLE-
    AMISI GETS TRICKED BY A DARK DEITY AND HAS TO SACRIFICE THUTMOSE'S FIRST BORN CHILD OR THE DOWNFALL OF EGYPT IS PROMISED.

    ENDING-
    THUTMOSE II LEAVES EGYPT AND SCOURS THE EARTH TO FIND HIS FIRST BORN CHILD.


    PART II: EXTERNAL MONOLOUGES

    Identifying the Main Character(s):

    HATSHEPSUT
    THUTMOSE II
    AMISI

    Character Introductions:

    HATSHEPSUT- FUTURE QUEEN OF EGYPT AND PROTAGONIST.
    THUTMOSE II- FUTURE PHAROAH OF EGYPT AND PROTAGONIST.
    AMISI- THUTMOSE'S LOVER, HIGH PRIESTESS OF EGYPT, AND ANTAGONIST.

    Description (Outside POV):

    HATSHEPSUT- EVERYONE RESPECTED HATSHEPSUT AND BOWED THEIR HEADS LOWER THAN HERS WHEN SHE ENTERED. PEOPLE WERE INTIMIDATED BY HER STATUS AND OFTEN DID NOT TRY TO INTERACT WITH HER. HER SERVANTS AND PEOPLE LOVED HER BECAUSE SHE WAS EXTREMELY GENEROUS EVEN WHEN COUNSELED TO GIVE LESS,

    AMISI- HALF THE PEOPLE IN EGYPT SOUGHT HER FOR GUIDANCE AND HEALING WHILE THE OTHER HALF SPOKE OF HER IN AN ILL MANNER BECAUSE THEY FEARED THAT SHE WAS BORROWING DARK POWERS. SHE HAD A GROUP OF WORSHIPPERS.

    THUTMOSE- (I need some help on how others see him)
