A to Z: X



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

X
Wait, I don't have any "x" names!!!

World Building Thought/Question: Does your world have any xenophobic characters?

Ok, ok, so I looked up x words and came up with that.

Hmm - ok, here's a better question:

Does your book have an "x" that marks the spot kind of place? A special place that has meaning for your characters?

My books had entire races that were xenophobic.

Rachna Chhabria said...

No Xenophobic characters yet.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

No characters for me either.

Tyrean Martinson said...

That's true, and it was an important facet of the plot!

Tyrean Martinson said...

And what about special places?

Tyrean Martinson said...

What about special places?

Nate Wilson said...

Hmm, I don't have any xenophobes, either. Just a guy with some racial and religious prejudices. I should fix that. No special place, either. Unless you count the panic room. (I don't. It's not that special.)

How about you?

I'm also participating in the A-Z Challenge and my theme focuses on books and their titles. The titles begin with the letter of the day.

Nope. No xenophobic characters . . . and hey, it works for this challenge! :P

Oh, mine does! Mine does! A quaint little cabin in the woods--far away from all the evils in the world :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Panic room? For you or your characters? Just kidding. :) Thanks for stopping by, Nate!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks for stopping by GirlyBookworm!

Tyrean Martinson said...

One of my recent novels has a few very important X spots - but one in particular, where an old childhood treasure is buried (or used to be ...!).

I'm working on a historical novel set in 1859. Plenty of people were xenophobic since foreigners were taking up jobs and changing the political landscape in the northern states.

I don't have any X names, but there are X spots. In The Broken Blade series one spot would be the boys' homes. Even when they go on their quest they are always thinking of their homes.
Another might be the Elves' home. They learn a lot there so it has a special meaning to them later on.

Some of my projects have xenophobic characters in them. In fact, the protagonist of an old project of mine could probably be classified as one, haha...
