I'm back again with day six of the month long Buccaneer Blogfest hosted by Sharon Bayliss and Courtney Young.
Before I get started, first I'd like to thank everyone who commented on Wednesday's post. The continued support of Sibylline Nights is both greatly appreciated and very flattering. I'm pleased to hear everyone enjoyed my "hangers" and character interview.
Work in Progress - July 20: Share your light bulb moment with us. How did you come up with the idea for your WIP?
I didn't really have one "Eureka!" moment when the idea flooded my mind. I've always been interested in magic, fantasy and witches. My early childhood stories all involved girls with magical powers.
I've also been heavily by things like Xmen, the Craft, Charmed, video games and the many wonderful fantasy books I read.
When I (again) started thinking about writing original fiction in 2009, the idea of three sisters with magical abilities came to mind. Back then it didn't have much of a plot, just that triplets had been separated at birth, and at eighteen - along with meeting their grandmother - were reunited.
It was in 2011, when I started work on the story for NaNoWriMo, that proper ideas came, and the worldbuilding - including the PID, the Orphic Plane and backstory - began to develop.
Since then it's been a roller-coaster, and I feel like every time I edit and work on a scene/ chapter, I'm adding more details, and discovering new things.
