Hey guys! Wanted to talk briefly about the fictional elements of my book.
I have approached certain aspects of my story in a way that allows a somewhat limitless resource of fantasy element to my story.
What I mean by all that is my story is very much influenced and based within a realistic and believable world setting, it’s something that I wanted my story to be set in as I wanted to make it easy to digest for my readers and to make the fictional aspects of the story be a lot more believable.
I say this as there are a few things in the “Book of Ascension” that could easily be something you might find in a fantasy novel or science fiction book.
This however is what I didn’t want people to see my story as, one of my main aims with the story is to open peoples minds as to what is possible in real life, what people are capable of and to realise the amount of potential that our race have or could have.
Now I know I have kept you guys waiting for a chance to actually peep a piece of my book, but that something you will have to bare with ^__^
Until then guys please take a look at this article here!
This is a blog post I found, that discusses the anti-science movement that has developed across the world an the effect it has on our society, I really connected with it as I thought it tied in with a theme that I will cover in my story that deals with the limited availability of information to us and the knowledge that we do have is only a controlled fraction of what there actually is available out there if we only knew where to look.
It’s that theme that allows me to make the unbelievable aspects of my story more believable for my readers, so although my story is based in realism it sneakily enables my story to add in science fiction, fantasy, horror and fable elements. Coz everybody loves that stuff wright?
