Seeking Answers at the Ends of the Earth

Time for another creative challenge! Take a look at the image below:


I love pinning images like this on Pinterest. It's from my "Landscapes for Inspiration"  board. These kinds of pictures get my creative juices flowing. I always stop and think, what kind of story would take place in this picture?

So, you tell me. What do you think is happening in this scene?

Here's my take: A man is travelling into a dangerous, magical place to get answers. It's accessible only by water, and he's paddling into a darkness he can't comprehend... This could actually work well in my Dragon Magic story. Eventually, many volumes from now, one of my characters will go on a journey, seeking something specific. He'll travel nearly to the ends of the world to find it. This could be him. His name is Gadrin.

How about you? What story would you tell about this image?


  1. Dark, vile creatures entered this man's village. Their main objective was to kidnap his son. They killed all who opposed them. Badly wounded in the attack, he vowed to find his son and kill his kidnappers. After two years of searching, he has finally determined that the lair of these creatures is at the end of this waterway.

    1. Sweet! Great story! You should totally write it! :D
