The world building on this novel has really captured my imagination. Tonight I did a quick sketch of the religion and it’s implications for the characters.
What started out as a re-interpretation of Macbeth has really grown and taken a life of its own.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, the heart of the story is still Murder, Mutiny, and Madness. The setting has become richer and the characters are really starting to form around the world-building, but it is still at heart a gender-bending Macbeth.
I am staying away from new version of Macbeth lest my vision become clouded.
