It's time for another A to Z Challenge! This year, I want to tell you about a story that is currently a WIP (work in progress). It's the story I'm writing in honor of my baby lovebird, Robert. It's a fantasy story, but it's really a story about emotional healing. So let's examine it by going through the alphabet!
Q is for quest.
Robert is on a quest, in The Good Pirate, Robert. He's on a quest to save three members of his crew. They were taken away to Mulrad, the land of misery.
Robert knows, though, that this isn't just a normal search and rescue mission. His crew mates were among countless others who were trapped in the bad place. Robert's quest had to be a great one.
Indeed it was! He set out to do what no one had ever done before...go to Mulrad, and return to Locreya. Getting to Mulrad was easy. Getting out seemed impossible. No one had ever left before, so it must be impossible, right?
Thankfully, our little feathered hero is a brave one. He laughs at the word impossible. He knows that if you can get there, you can get back. Being the good soul that he is, he makes sure that he frees not just his crew members, but everyone who is trapped in Mulrad.
What a quest this is! It is a lengthy one, and incredibly involved. It's tricky to find a way out of Mulrad without being discovered and sucked into its misery. Robert is smart, cunning, and fearless, though. Thanks to those traits, he makes the impossible possible.
Now, I'd love to get into all of the good, juicy details, but why spoil the fun?! If you want to see HOW this happens, you'll just have to find out when the book comes out! ;)
In the meanwhile, come back tomorrow as we explore the letter r!
