When Heathbird suggested telepathy I grinned :) "Of course she was thinking that. I should have known." Indeed her suggestion was no surprise in the light of a recent conversation we'd had. Thank you, Heathbird. It was just the word I needed to jump start me into posting :)
The subject of telepathy has intrigued me for sometime and indeed I have had experiences which I can only describe as being like telepathy in many ways. These experiences found their way into the first novel I began in 2005 (I think) and is a fantasy piece. Back in 2005 I had begun reading Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series and was delighted at the cleverness with which he wove the modern world into the history behind the current world in which his story was taking place and the way he wove in belief systems and enough "real" and plausible experiences that it became alive in a way no fantasy world had ever lived in my mind before. He was genius in this way.
In the book there are 3 main characters. They are triplets, sisters who were separated at birth for reasons of necessity. None of the girls knows of the existence of her siblings and each, due to circumstances beyond their control, go on a search of for their roots. During their search they begin having odd experiences. They begin passing feelings from one to another in a similar way as I envision telepathy to work. They also occasionally see out of the eyes of one of the other girls in cases where the absent sister is experiencing a traumatic event. At the end of the book two of the sisters find their family and each other. Everyone is concerned about whether the third is alive and because they have, by then, figured out the connection between them the girls are able to not only tell their clan that she is alive, but also where she is.
The book is the second in a series and needs some major rewrites as it is missing some very important character arcs and is thus still a project under construction, but one I hope to eventually finish along with it's counterparts.
I hope those of you who decided to use the Word of the Day as inspiration had as much fun with the word Telepathy as I did.
