I wish I could remember where I read it– I’d have loved to link to the article!– but somewhere around the internet I read the suggestion to boil my novel down into 7-10 major themes and post them where I could easily see them.
As I write Mill City Heroes, these are the themes I keep on my radar in image form (my computer desktop’s background actually!):
Clockwise from top left: poppies, winter, feline, slavery/freedom, red, Peter Pan, city (particularly Mill City, i.e. Minneapolis), ravens.
So, are you intrigued? Confused? A little of both?
I can’t wait to tell you more as this novel takes form!
