A Spiritualist Angle emerges… #WABWM

By Holly Lisle

In working through the Create A World Clinic, I’m also developing the worldbuilding for a story of my own, demonstrating the techniques I use and showing my work as part of the course.

And today, I got the first hints of a practitioner of one of the branches of the Spiritualist movement operating in the story’s past.

It was an interesting catch, which arose from something I remembered vaguely from two separate threads of US history that ran simultaneously: that the Roaring Twenties were concurrent with several new approaches to the 1800’s fascination with table rapping and materializing physical manifestations of spirits.

I got 625 words today. But they gave me in an interesting direction, and provided a good demo for the Divide for Conflict section of the Line World chapter.
