The Waters between the worlds

Posted by nightphoenix on October 21, 2009 in Novels, Output, Process |

We watched Spirited Away last weekend, and I was once again struck by the train sequence. I started to imagine what kind of stories the spirit train itself had collected before Chihiro even gets on: where it goes, who the spirits are that get on and off, its connection to the real world, etc. A vague story idea began to take shape in my head. Something about a character lost and riding the train between the worlds (or some other transportation device), trying to find his or her way home…or possibly a different character falling in love with the lost one.

I’ve let the idea percolate a little bit over the last few days, and here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

I don’t know where this one will go in the queue. Possibly pretty far back, as it’s relatively undeveloped at this point.

In other news, I’m 5 scenes into the Shades rewrite, and am actually in scene 8 from the first draft. The High Priestess has a little more of a presence at this point than she did in the first draft, which I’m hoping will make her fight with Raphel more meaningful. I’ve actually almost reached that scene…yay for me!
