Worlds Away Writing Challenge:
Seven days of questions, prompts, and ideas to keep you writing. The rules?
- Answer each question/prompt as completely as possible.
- Add the link-icon to your posts.
- If you are so inclined, challenge other writing bloggers(or just any blogger in general) to challenge the challenge by completing the…um…challenge.
Day 3: Does your world have an overriding theme? What is it? Explain.
In a way, it actually has several. Though I’ve written quite a few short stories placed there, in addition to the novel, there are several points that keep coming up. Number one is individuality. Most of my characters are somewhat…well…unique. Like the florist who is in fact a mercenary/fence/whatever-she-decides-she-is-today. They all do precisely what they want, regardless of social convention. Secondly, the fact that human nature is always fundamentally the same comes up a lot.
Those two themes dominate the whole of my work, in that world or otherwise. And I don’t really have a problem with that.
