It’s time to do some world building tonight. While I have already started working on the first outline (draft) of my current story “Mystics”, there are still quite a few parts that have never graduated from the rough idea stage. One of those parts is a scene that takes place inside the head of one of the mystic characters. The world inside the mind of the mystic character needs to be significantly different from the waking world, but not so far out there that it would throw anyone out of the story.
I am currently thinking that there is a connection between the natural world and the mystic world — and that connection takes place in the mind of the mystics. Normally the connection isn’t much more that background noise, easily ignored; but when Rachael is trapped inside her own mind, the mystic world continues to spill into her mind with her and uses it as a refuge.
Okay, I have some creative juices flowing. It’s time to work on the world.
