Question by BirdGirlsS: How does this plot sound to you? Would you read it?(critiques welcome!!!)?
I’m writing this story, its my first time writing anything longer than 2 pages so i need some help. Does this plot sound OK to you? Please tell me anything i can fix about it!
Three strangers come to Mina’s house and tell her that she has some kind of magic(don’t know what kind. there are 4 kinds, healing, whispering-talking to animals,elemental-control elements, battle). They are from the Mage academy in the capital, Solis. They take her with them, and her pet bird Willow follows her. when they arrive, All new students are assigned an older student as a mentor. Mina is paired with the proud and independent Fynn. She figures out that she has whispering magic, and that she talks to birds. Mina is the only whisperer in 100 years, and the bully, Roben, attacks her because he doesn’t think a girl should get the honor of being the prophesied one.
There will be more after that, but that’s what starts the story off.
it will have battles and fights in it, im just not including those in this thing. There will be one at the beginning most likely, and miltiple ones between Mina and Roben, and a big one at the end
there’s other magic too, like moving stuff, potions,black magic etc. but at the academy the students are divided into one of the 4. they take basic stuff and potions too.
sorry the magic is called whispering. it is talking to animals. the hyphen threw some people off 🙂
it would be a book btw. But my “short stories” i write for my classes end up being 7 or 8 pages. And whispering would be any animal, not just birds. Mina mostly uses it for birds though
Answer by Mike Young
That plot line would be good for a very relaxed story with a lot of adventure but little fighting.
