One time a few years ago, while walking down this street, I had an experience that sparked some brainstorming on the backburner. It’s been simmering ever since. Recently, the threads came together in an outline of a new story I’m ready to write.
Keywords involved include: may day, channels, flora, fourth dimension, beltane, magic, san francisco, portal, mission, fires, floodgate, liberty, faeries, distress signal, light, scotland, clairvoyant, paris, midnight, somewhere, medium, audrey, bullies, neon, past, sensitive, spirit guide, telekinetic, present, art, argon, future, labor, breaking barriers, flying, weather, fulgurate, anthem, energy, reincarnation, metaphysics, saved, shimmering, self.
All these ideas may or may not make it into the final draft. These keywords will help create a larger story map, as I attempt to build out the novel by wireframing the structure, like an information architecture project, to maximize user experience, e.g. your reading pleasure. This is clearly majorly meta.—Michelle
