clearing the slate

I’ve decided to set aside everything I’ve written on A Lamentation of Swans, and start fresh with my ideas. Reading Linda Lappin’s article, See with Fresh Eyes, in the November 2009 issue of The Writer, raised a question: what if Angharad has a secret history?

Angharad is the only city in Raeve, the crown seat, and where 97% of the vas’ru live their secret lives. I had not thought about tying the city to their hidden history, but I like that idea very much. Angharad is now a human city, but what if, in the past, it wasn’t?
