Topic: Keywords

Page: 1
  • Keywords

    I'm less than halfway through Winter's Fury, which I enjoy very much. There seem to be more keywords than the other books. I love keywords, since they let you branch out more in the story, and they seem to add some mystery when the text asks if you have one ("Ashes? I haven't seen that yet. Where do I find it, and where will it lead?"). Video games and apps keep track of your progress for you, but I like this bit of personal record-keeping. It seems to help me get more involved in the book.

    The problem with having a lot of keywords is, I start writing them down in the order I find them, then start losing track. I even split the Notes/Keywords section into alphabetical columns (A-H, I-R, S-Z) to try keeping them in order. So I was hoping you could post on the forum an alphabetical list of all keywords used in the story. The keywords seem vague enough that they won't spoil anything. I could then copy them in ink, and make/erase checks next to the keywords in pencil, as needed. I did this for the great Fabled Lands series, where I had FOUR whole books of keywords on one page, plus all the book pages where I'd check boxes. So I'm not afraid of the extra work Thanks.

    Wonderful! Thank you. Though you didn't include pauper and prince. Could you also do this on the forums for future books when they come out (assuming/hoping there will be future books)? I'd really appreciate it.

  • Re: Keywords

    Added those. Yes, if/when future books happen I'll happily provide a keyword list.

  • Re: Keywords

    That would be a great improvement!
