T is for Twilight Treasure Hunt (and Tolkien)

April 23, 2014

For the A to Z challenge this year, I’m sharing science fiction and fantasy story ideas…

No, not the kind of twilight with sparkly vampires. I wonder how long they’re going to be associated with that word. 😉

This is another kinda thin notion that makes me think of a favorite book, but I came across those words on my Sweet Spot Map list and thought of a treasure hunt (or the search for a Macguffin,) where you have to be at the right spot for twilight, during the transition from day into night, to find the magic path to continue onward. Tolkien used ‘the setting sun with the last light’, but it’s a very similar idea. (And yes, The Hobbit is largely a treasure hunt of sorts.)

If you’re interested enough to pick this up and write your own version, feel free; ideas are cheap. And let me know! I’ll be keeping the notions vague enough that lots of different stories might be written from them.

Thanks for visiting!
