I've been writing a lot of fantasy material, recently, for development of the Twinkli. My business partner, Liz, and I have come up with something that will empower girls as they have fun levitating a sparkly glitter ball called the Winkli. There's video now at the IndieGoGo crowdfunding project location.
Liz is doing the heavy lifting (funny way to put it). Getting the thing to levitate was causing a lot of problems. Now, it's doing its intended thing, which is a blessed relief, indeed! :P
But what's been the most fun for me has been attracting the fantasy language and stories!
Everything revolves around a fairy princess called Zoe. By fairy princess, we seem to mean a human girl highly esteemed by members of the fairy realm. The whole creative process is filled with mystery, and even I can't explain how I know much of what I know, here.
For example, there's a point at which human size fairies without wings are in a field with ponies, while tiny fairies with wings look on from the periphery. There's forest behind the tiny fairies. Well, game warmups begin and tiny fairies fly into the field with bowls of lemonade.
I just came up with this on a whim. I knew they couldn't fly in with glasses of lemonade. That would have looked all wrong. How would they hold the glasses straight. So bowls made sense. And it was so fun & quirky! Fine.
Well, in a later installment, I have a fairy everyone calls Baby blow a bubble, slice it in half, and pour lemonade into it. As I wrote this, I was high on the magical imagery. But it was only after Liz edited and it was published that it occured to me that I had already described lemonade in bowls. And now I had described where these bows had come from!
But I hadn't consciously gone out to write about the origin of the bowls of lemonade that had been flown out. I only realized I had done this after the fact! :P
The human mind. You gotta love it! :O)
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! :D
Sunshine & Blessings,
Liz & I are developing a magic levitating Twinkli for girls. And we're ready to share it. Wanna come play?

Now, Jem is excited about supporting the Twinkli project in some way, but was confused when she arrived at IndieGoGo. So, following, is a message to help straighten things out. She surely won't be the only one to find the set-up confusing, so here's the note for everyone to see and learn from;
Remember, to be active on the project (other than cutting and pasting the link), it really helps to actually JOIN INDIEGOGO. It's free, as the message will explain.
