As we fall into fall I always start thinking about the end of another year and the season that brings the year to a close. As a culture we like to celebrate the coming season with merriment, gift-giving and festivities as in days of old. I am reminded of medieval times and how the people would celebrate the Yule.
With that in mind I am contemplating an idea for a medieval Christmas story. Different than A Medieval Yule, a very short story that was released a few years back. That story was written for the publisher and their Twelve Days of Christmas promotion.
I have an idea forming in my mind for a Christmas story that can tie into the yet to be released Knight Series. The new story will have a Yule theme and feature a castle keep celebrating the season.
The young heroine is the daughter of a wealthy baron and is betrothed to one she feels is a loathsome older man. She does not want to become his bride. As the Yule approaches and celebrations abound, things happen.
Who is he? Where did he hail from? Why does he seem so different? And why is she so enamored with him…
These are just basic ideas that are coming to me. I may not get this story done. But I plan to work on this idea and just maybe I will create it into a nice little Yule story just in time for the coming season.
One direction I am pondering: Andy, aka, the young bumbling wizard who is actually from the future in the story Knight Medieval certainly does needs a heroine. Of course while creating, all these ideas could go in a completely different direction. Intriguing as it may be, because Andy is actually a quantum specialist tied to the future, it could become more complex than I want for this kind of story. I will just have to see.
I also plan to layer and expand last year’s Christmas story, Almost Home – Nick & Krista Christmas which will likely get its makeover and a nice reboot for the coming season.
Wish me luck with the interesting new medieval ideas. And the reboot of last year’s seasonal story too.
I’ll keep you updated.
