So I started the story by fleshing Mackenzie out. Uncle Doug is still there but I feel I did an alright job with him in the first draft (but not to worry, he’s a lot different too). But this post isn’t about Mackenzie or Uncle Doug. It’s about the future.
Each story will feature a majority of each of the children. I want to flesh out their mythos. Ernest is a gun nut. Samantha is a peace mediator and researcher. Stuart is a leader who may or may not possess wizard powers. Jimmy is a clumsy nerd who’s a lot more dangerous than he looks. Terrence is the inventor.
The scope and magnitude of this story is something I’ve never really gone into before. I build a town/creature sanctuary in Ruby Caves but what else is out there? I’ve walked you through lucid dreams in Wish List. In the stories of Dave I’ll lead you into a protector of Earth’s spiritual and physical world. Besides It, I think the major inspiration for this series would have to be Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon. It’s the story of discovery and life in a small town down south. There’s so much out there and I’m just beginning to scratch the surface.
