I have an ongoing story that is developing from the basis that my heart and eyes desire a story of dreams turning into realities no matter how nonsensical the adventure could be into achieving them.
A summary of my story so far is illustrating how grandma is passing down her family secrets of a wonderful power to be possessed. The magic includes the answering of three wishes to come true that can only be asked of from the ear in the tree and worked by gods. The gods that arrive depend on their time of calling. The wishes are only designed for the greater good of the Earth and its people. The threat is the squirrels that can take the wishes to dark gods that can manipulate them.
Still a working story at the moment but I am loving the process of making this a fun exploration for myself and the reader.
I love working into the story the characters of Gods based on animals that have their own unique detailed costumes. The gods come in pairs and loving partnerships.
The inspiration of this idea was the result of my visual diary entries that often reflected my wishes and dreams and also this useful storytelling resource that made me feel less frightened and lost about the project.
