    Notes

Artist's Description

I’m a novelist and I have several works awaiting publication
One is a novel that is part of a 12 book chronicle saga Victoriana

Worldly is the story of a boy Michael Kent who is cast out into the world to become a man.

The skeleton of the story is there but I need to flesh it out with events that help to form Michael’s character

Sadly my American History has MANY holes in it (Well I’m an Aussie after all!) but I also want the perception of life from a native point of view.

Because I want Michael Kent to crisscross the country a few times in the 10 – 15 year period I have given him; not only is he the main character of this novel he is a tool by which he can be placed anywhere in the country to be the eyes into an event that helps to form his character and the character of the country.

I want to have Michael (and thereby the readers) discover the truth of life of that period not the politically correct mumbo-jumbo that was allowed to be printed as official documents. I need him to form an intelligent and aesthetic view of the world – confusing for him as it may be perceived as conflicted to the authorities of the time. He then brings these ideals to Australia and helps advise the next generation in how they help form our state/country; in the sequel Chronicles “the Victorians”

This is an information gathering exercise to then help create the novel I wish to finish by November 30th (motivated to accomplish through the Nanowrimo Challenge – to write 30,000 words in 30 days)

All people who assist me will be thanked in my novel (Whether I use your information or not! I am grateful for your willingness to help)

and If my mug pops up favouring your art all over the place I apologize now as it will just be me seeking further inspiration and motivation.

Thank you for your time!
