The fantasy aspect seemed to scream out at me, and I did like it. Plotwise, I used to be very intimidated by the idea of plotting. Of course, now I plot in stages if the story is big (Innocence and Loneliness is only planned to Act I at the moment) and I write down a few notes and scenes. The trick with such intimidation is like a nightmare. The more you think about it, the more it consumes you and intimidates. Go at it with clear head, with a simple outline, and let ideas flow. I'd read it.
Poetry is always a good mix in narrative, if not for dramatic effect, but for thematic effect. It deepens work in many ways, when done right. Hit me up if you ever get the story off the ground, I'd give it a good gander.
Ack! My writing's on the back-burner lately. My story would have promise but it'll take some deep plotting and notes for me to continue it. Also, I'm trying to flesh out the characters. It makes it all so much easier to handle a deeper story. So Part Six will be the largest chunk for a while, while I plot it out and such. Thanks for reading it, but don't rush. It's a large piece of text, which sometimes scares people off.
