Hi, I have indulged in illustrated novel writing for the last five years. It is very specifically about a spiritual kingdom of my imagination. I won't disclose the names of kingdoms, characters and novel titles for copyright purposes. As for specific contents, ideas and themes I'm leading with, I won't disclose either for the same reason. However, I've opened this thread to invite like minded writers and share the opportunity to discuss ideas and issues relating to writing a spiritual kingdom. My indulgence for the last half a decade is also my spiritual journey of imagination and inspiration, every good bit of which is captured and translated into artworks, hand drawings, illustrations, designs and story writing. I have and will constantly imagine myself amongst a spiritual kingdom that exists in the heaven, and whose adventurers and warriors descend onto Earth and other worlds on epic quests. I've sought for years further inspiration and an opportunity to share with peers my wonderful creations. I have only recently found this forum, and I am quite delighted to engage here. To start this thread off with... Authorial Motive/Agenda Spiritual kingdom as an imaginative concept in story writing is sometimes driven by the author's sense of mission but a failure to implement it in reality. This writing practice can also have the potential to achieve the author's message to the whole human world and enlighten them. It is a bit like religious writing, in which case, I am already conceptualising an imaginary religion as a characteristic of the spiritual kingdom - it can sound like, if I am taking it seriously in publishing and conveying to the world with both imagination/fiction and a humanitarian message, I could be pioneering a new religion in the 21st century world. This 'religion' and the conception of spiritual kingdom in novel writing is all about expressing one's highest values and ideology. I will update and introduce new subject matters in this thread. In the meantime, anyone's posts are awaited!
