   Glorianna of Berg has always heard stories about an ancient magical tree—the Ora-Ara— which can transport those who touch it to another world, though she's never once believed them to be true. Until the year she turned sixteen that is. Living with her grandparents due to circumstances, Glorianna awakens one night to the melody of a flute; she follows the tune into the woods behind her grandparents' house and discovers that they weren't just telling stories.
   
   Due to touching the tree, Glorianna is whisked away to Shire, a land full of magic and secrets and spells. There she learns that the country is at war between the witches--who have taken over-- and the elves. Along with dragons, fairies, and prophets--who have split up between the two groups.

Oh look at all of this!

I read every bit! Have you ever heard of a game called Dragon Age? This reminds me of that a bit actually. A very "Wizard of Oz" type story too. Very cool!

I think it should be a story.

But I only say that because I have a dislike for plays.

gg, i haven't heard of that game sorry; and i was righting it as a play, but then i stopped...the beginning of how i want to start it is much better suited for on-stage, but as the story goes on an on-paper approuch would be better; you're thoughts on my perdicament?

I think anything written as a play can be adapted to story. It'd be a bit difficult maybe, but if it reinforces the whole story, you should do it.

Maybe you could try something new for the beginning of the story? Like... when I start stories off, I like to start in the first person, or very close third person, and experience the world and everything happening from a single perspective. I feel, its more immersive and lets people worry about the details a bit later.

Its a lot of fun! I like to start off with the person trying to figure out where they are and what's going on. Let the reader experience things AS the person thats experiencing them. Put the reader INTO the world. There's a lot of potential for the reader to learn and imagine and feel the world that way.
