New Annotation + Idea!


New annotation: Chapter Fifty-five

Since this is a bit late, how about a story idea too?

I focus a lot on worldbuilding elements, particularly magic elements, in these idea blurbs. That is, perhaps, because I find magic systems to be one of the most interesting parts of storytelling.

However, there is something to be said for good plot ideas. One of the things ELANTRIS has going for it is a very cool concept: The fallen city of the gods.

Story Idea of the Day: Write a story about a culture where everybody can teleport wherever they want whenever they want.

What would this do to a society? The ability to just blink about? Privacy would be impossible, and travel would–of course–become a foreign concept. Would people even bother walking? There’s a lot here that could be very thought provoking.
