NaNoWriMo Day 8: The Break

The Break.

I have yet to tell you about my magic system, but I will soon enough.  It ties into the Break, so I wanted to explain that first.  The Break is part of the world in my story.  It’s a massive crack in the crust of the planet that was caused by a powerful angel 6,000 years ago.

It’s a fissure that’s nearly 1,000 miles long, 100 miles wide, and 8,000 feet deep.  Every year it gets a little larger.  Scientists believe that in 10,000 years the Break will be so large it will sever the world in two.  At the bottom of the massive canyon is a thick cloud of energetic mist (which I will explain in detail in another post).

My two main characters have just arrived at the Break and are seeing it for the first time, despite that they’ve always lived relatively close to it.  It’s a fun aspect of the world to develop and write.

Current word count for Mistcraft: 24,485/50,000!

Until the world breaks,

Andrew Ronzino, Shadow of Men
