Hey everyone, remember all the times I've talked about writing a mystery and/or a fantasy where the main character was blind and it was all in the first-person? Well, someone already beat me to it. In Book Two of N.K. Jemisin's The Inheritance Trilogy, called The Broken Kingdoms, the main character is Oree, a young blind girl. I just started reading this book so I'm not sure what she'll do. Yes, it's entirely in first person from her perspective and she can kind of see via magic or something. Hard to explain though as I'd have to read through it. Am I surprised? Shocked? Upset? I'm surprised, yes, but not upset. Obviously I'm not the first person to come up with a story revolving around a blind MC who can ‘see’ in one form or another. It's just a funny little coincidence that when I'm struggling to figure out how I can write a story from this POV, here comes Oree to show me exactly how. I just hope Jemisin won't mind if she ever opened my fantasy story to see that my MC is a blind teen who can kick ass, and it's from the first-person perspective. So what about you all? Ever had that feeling where someone else beat you to an idea floating around in your head? What was your reaction?
