haha - the "call to adventure" stage, the very first part of the journey. sci-fi, set in approx 2070, where a newly-created breed of human has taken over the earth and driven everyone else into hiding. the "call" received is made to the main character in order to get the ball rolling on bringing the humans back out "into the sun" so to speak, because the created humans ("night creatures") aren't actually all that bad.

you?

Sounds great! I can't wait til people start uploading their works. :)

Mine is a bit more literal... :p It's about a guy working in a lost and found office who creates a world around him self. I have three parts corresponding to the Hero's Journey (Down the Rabbit Hole, The Yellow Brick Road and Belly of the Whale) and at the start of each he imagines a character on the Hero's Journey, at a certain stage of it. Then his personal journey is another mirror of the journey itself, its all very layered, lol.

layers are good :D markers like layers. they're going to have to read my RS to understand the "subtle complexities" i've "embedded" into my story. *cough*

and i'm sick of those metaphorical pieces - who knows if you're really understanding what the composer is trying to say? literal is awesome. mine's literal; it's so literal it's pretty much a straight narrative.

a lost and found office... sounds interesting. and i mean that, lol, not just "interesting" *wide eyed smile* where the person is like "greeeeat." i'll definitely have a squizz at yours.

i think the mods'll put the threads up by wednesday - that's the absolute cut-off date for teachers to send off the works, i think. my teacher already sent ours, on friday afternoon.

i made my title 'The Paper Crane' and then this year a woman came out with a book called 'Paper Cranes'. i almost cried. anyone else had their title for their major work turn up as a published book that wasnt written by you?

wow i like the sound of your title :) "The House of God" - some very resounding connotations

mine is quite simplistic i guess : SHATTERED
although on more of a metaphorical level :)
