Zelda says uncanny things. Painted fingers stroke a ball that contains the universe, if you look closely enough. And look closely she will, at your behest. Her kohled eyes dim with futurous light, reflecting candles and mystical aethers. Her face pales and lips murmur, communing with spirits, or maybe just herself as she tells you what she knows. Some things you'll want to hear, some seem impossible. Others break your heart and you find yourself thinking of ways to beat the prophecy. Zelda is at once a terrible and wonderful experience. She is impossible to wholly believe, but also impossible to ignore.
Tada! That's Z! Thanks for coming along for the ride this month! It's been so much fun and I've learned a lot. Hope you enjoyed, and let's keep in touch :)
This month I am participating in the April A-Z Challenge! My theme for the month is ‘character development.’ Some days will be exercises from John Gardner’s The Art of Fiction, others will be profiles of characters from my book Armageddon: Pick Your Plot, and some will just be random characters I make up. I hope you enjoy!
