As I said, Jane and I have a great book idea. The first glimmer of inspiration came about when Jane was writing a MG fantasy for her own ICL course. We were talking on the phone one day when Jane said we should write a sequel– a book where the heroine travels into the past and weaves time to fix problems. Her words sparked my imagination. I said, “Yes! The girl is a Timeweaver!” We soon determined the idea was too big for a sequel to her MG. It needed to be its own story for an older age group. We began brainstorming Timeweaver ideas.
The next glimmer came because I have a habit of reading the Book of Mormon daily. There is a passage in Alma that gets to me every time I read it. It says in part: time only is to man. I called Jane. We took that quote completely out of context and created a world where time IS only to man, and women —more specifically a group of women called Timeweavers— weave it.
Like a grain of sand in an oyster, the ideas began to layer, and when we’re done, we’ll have a pearl. Will we be successful and get it published? Stay tuned. Time will tell.
