Yeah, I have him partially developed, but the rest I decided to hold off on developing until I'm done with a few other projects on my other book. :P


Alright then. :D

Great idea, Bethy! So like... people could have their own songs. Would they choose them at a certain age or would they be given at birth? Maybe the villain of the world would be trying to destroy music? Or bring in scary music! Maybe there would be music torture! Like... pop! I would be tortured if I would have to listen to Lady Gaga or... Rebecca Black!

*laughs* Something like that... I think every sentient being has a song given to them at birth, but....yeah, that's as far as I've gotten.

The idea of each child being given a song after birth for some reasons strikes me as a metaphor for Baptism... probably because my church does infant baptisms... and now my brain is spinning off into metaphorical ways of showing baptism in fantasy worlds. But music is so beautiful and powerful, I could see it as a great metaphor for God's saving grace given to each of us.

I don't really go for allegory a lot... but sometimes I write a history and the plot and I look at it and it looks like an allegory... :P

Haha, yeah, I do that too, Namor. The only allegory I think about is the creation of my world... Any other allegory you see in my books is, nine times out of ten, coincidental.

I many times have a "Jesus" character. And I also had a coincidence of a Judah-type nation.

I like to slip allegorical elements into my stories, but keep them subtle. I enjoy a bit of quiet symbolism. Someday I might try to write an actual allegory, but for now I'm content with being "sneaky" about it.

Indeed, Ardyth, I do not like to put my allegories plain as day out there, I read a book that had a very strong allegory; it almost got to be annoying! It followed the old testement way too closely!

Are you going to use any allegory (specifically creation) in your music filled book?

Let's form it then. We are talking about Allegory, we need to stay on subject.

Yes, there will at least be some. :D Definitely allegory for creation...

And actually, the story is formed... Just not the world. So I have the plot (well, the bones of it, I'm a panster...so...just the bones before I write) I just need to develop the world to put the plot in. :D

I think that music could be used as an instrument of creation if you wish. A certain tune or beat made by the Maestro (just kidding about the maestro part) made for his creation. Maybe? No? No?

* checks prologue * I think, when I wrote the first rough draft I described creation as something along the lines of:

"In the beginning of _____, The Great Musician created our world using the song of creation. With heavenly instruments, he summoned the world into existence. Through different songs he made different races..."

And then I go on to explain the races...etc. Anyways, rough draft...totally worth being torn apart, but it's good to get the idea, I guess. :D

First drafts are made to be torn apart!

Sounds really cool, Bethy!

We are talking about a world based on music! And you asked a question about its allegory and I answered (wrongly as it was but I answered! :P )
