I'd love to hear some ideas on an exciting paranormal based storyline... First off, excuse grammar/sp as I don't normally edit my posts. I've been a stay at home momma for the last 13yrs and live quite a mundane life. Although I love my son more than anything in the entire world and have enjoyed every bit of motherhood, I'm finding that I simply need more. Until about a year ago, I had struggled with the whole "something is missing in my life." dilemma and tried many different things to release my creativity. Never stuck to anything. I woke up one day (New Years Eve actually) and POOF, there it was... and straight out of nowhere!! Suddenly, I realized what I needed to do to fill that gaping hole. Before that day, I had NEVER in a million years even considered writing... A sign perhaps?? I started that very day because that is what my heart told me to do. Somehow this time around seems different. I'm not by any means a writing pro or a published author. I write as a hobby and now it's transformed into a passion! I'm loving the reasearch as well... keeps the ideas flowing! Even though there's a good chance that whatever I decide to complete will never really go anywhere, I've found it to be so much fun, exciting and an unbelievable stress releaser... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I'm a movie buff and enjoy readings that take me to a whole new world. I tend to hover around the paranormal genre. Have you ever read a book or watched a great movie but thought to yourself "If I could rewrite this book or movie script, this storyline could be a lot more exciting!" So I ask... can we maybe play around with a bit of mythology, a paranormal romance or anything magical and unique? I've chosen the main character to be a gifted 17yr old girl with a world saving purpose. There are guardians, witches, demons and a mother gone missing. She's eventually befriended by a small peculiar group that belongs to some secret society that helps her with her 'gift' that she's suddenly realized she's always had (runs in the family). She has reoccurring dreams of a woman. Woman informs her that there are four of them in total and not of this world, all connected to the elements somehow. A feisty Wiccan Grandmother who owns a Wiccan shop that she helps with... a couple of life long BFF's (guy & gal)... ALL MAGICALLY CONNECTED... a new found destiny and fighting evil... musssst have EVIL!! Goodness... I know... it's been done so many times... over and over!! But I'm looking to hear of any thoughts and ideas that are UNIQUE! Sooo, any light bulbs goin off?? I realize it's pretty vague... I'm just playin around and would love to hear what ANYBODY has to throw in!! I know this may be a boring post, but in the forum world I've found that I absolutely love exploring and hearing from anyone willing to send a few sparks my way! Thought I'd take a chance and hope to hear a reply of some kind... Thanks so very much in advance for taking the time... hope my post wasn't too painful as I'm still brand new to forums!!!
