I’m participating in a number of writer challenges on Instagram. One recent challenge asked: Why is my story important? To answer this question, I focused on EOLYN, Book One of the Silver Web Trilogy.
What drew me into Eolyn’s story was the immense courage and strength she demonstrates when confronting a brutal system intent on repressing her magic – Not only her magic, but the magic of all women. Eolyn never gives up despite the betrayals and bitter losses she endures. Like all of us, she makes some mistakes along the way, but that doesn’t undermine her faith. No matter how big the conflict, Eolyn is always reaching for a non-violent solution, even when everyone else is ready to draw their swords. I learned so much from working with Eolyn as a character. I consider it one of the great privileges of my life to have been able to tell her story, as well as the stories of her allies and enemies.
