    MUSIC: Prelude to a Hero fan composes another original piece of music

    MUSIC: Prelude to a Hero fan composes another original piece of music

    What's it's like to have a fan write original scores of music because they were inspired by your worldbuilding and storytelling? 

    In April of 2020, I got to find out.

    I received an email with an attachment that made my heart swell and I shared it with you.

    Then it happened again!!

    Based on the book Prelude to a Hero this reader created a song called 'Orchard Harvest' -- where Wendell was welcomed by the blue-skinned youth of Sanctuary during harvest time. At a time when our hero was both scared and unsure of himself, this delightful music depicts the kindness of the youth and the fun of the afternoon, collecting food for the community.

    Enjoy.

    MUSIC: Prelude to a Hero fan writes an original song for the world!

    It's wonderful to write stories that readers enjoy. It's even better when those readers reach out to let you know that what you've written has touched their minds and heart.

    ...but what's it's like to have a fan write an original score of music because they were inspired, and so they decided to make your world THAT-MUCH-BETTER for everyone else?

    I got to find out.

    In April of 2020, I received an email with an attachment that made my heart swell. I want to share it with you.

    Based on the book Prelude to a Hero this reader created a song called 'Sanctuary' -- imagining what they would feel like walking through the moon-city, where all people live in an isolated harmony, and where the focus is on service, not coin.

    Enjoy.

    WORLDBUILDING #7: Story Arcs

    Here we are, Day 7 in the worldbuilding series and it's time to cover STORY ARCS.

    What is the overall path your story will take from beginning to end and over the course of several books? To learn this aspect of worldbuilding is to learn the skill of overlapping and connecting the growth of your characters, to dramatically increase the complexity and realism of your story.

    In today's episode, Jaime takes a brief look at one of the most used story arcs in fantasy fiction: The Hero's Journey...using The Lord of the Rings as the example.

KnightPont ,

I love this show. Please make more

Jaime does such a great job of teaching important world-building principles. If you're a writer or storyteller I highly recommend you listen to this podcast. They're fun to listen to and I found myself smiling and laughing throughout the episodes. He does a really great job of getting his children involved, who are witty and smart. Well done everyone!
