A couple of weeks ago, we had to present what we had finished of our inquiries. This presentation really helped me figure out a lot more of the details of my story
My story takes place in a world with these creatures called Anima. When a child reaches the age of ten, an Anima sort of just comes to them and then bonds to them. Every Anima looks unique because how they look is based on their owner’s personality, so people with similar personalities might have similar creatures, but theyre never exactly the same. Anima are a representation of their owner’s personalities and dreams and goals in the future etc., their souls in a sense, and they grow and develop as their humans grow. They kinda act depending on the person’s emotions, like if their owner is happy, then they’ll be happier etc.
- Kim. She is an introvert, in the sense that she likes it better when shes just left on her own rather than surrounded by people, and she’s pretty apathetic about most things. Somewhere along the line she developed this “get over with it” outlook on life where she really just doesnt care about much besides just going to work which is what shes centred her life around. When compared to an animal, her anima is closest to a seadragon, except its white with colourful swirls.
- Eve, Kim’s best friend and co-worker. She’s really happy-go-lucky and can always make Kim smile Her Anima is pretty owl-like, but more yellowish and orangey than most owls.
Kim is bored. Her life has just become boring and repetitive, it has almost become another task she has to get over with. she just doesn’t enjoy life anymore. Because of this, her anima dulls. It starts to lose it’s shape and it’s colourful swirls start to disappear. This drives her to change her life and learn to enjoy it.
What I’ve got so far is really kinda vague. I have the introduction and the conclusion, but i have to figure out all the inbetween bits like the climax.
What I need to do
I still have to write the rest of the story after I plan out the rest of the plot and figure out a title.
