A To Z: O
The A to Z Challenge is underway this year, thanks to the awesome hosts and minions. Special thanks to Arlee Bird for starting this amazing blogging challenge!!! For more information about this challenge, go to the website!
Primary theme: World of Aramatir (Setting for The Champion Trilogy) Glossary
Secondary Theme: World-Building Questions and Thoughts
Odran – A member of the Watch Guard, has an osprey named Louras.
World Building Thought/Question: How much does the world outside of your main character's home affect your character and her/his journey?
From the very first short story rendition of Champion in the Darkness called "The Crystal Sword," my main character, Clara, took up her sword of power to help defend her country against other influences. As the story grew into a novel that grew into a trilogy, more of the "outside" world came into play. Clara meets people from other cultures, including members of the secretive Watch Guard like Odran. These meetings encourage Clara, or challenge her.
