Novel in a Nutshell

Day 15 of JaNo – 2160 words today, 32805 total

I had the good fortune to have someone ask what my novel was about, in a nutshell, which really helped me sort out what was really central, and gave me lots to think about. Basically, my novel is set in the world of the mori birds, and is an exploration of how people react when the basic rules of life and death no longer apply. On a more plot-ish level, the story involves a posse of five setting out on a quest to find and save the stolen mori birds. (This summary will make little sense to people who haven’t read my mori bird story, but the main point is that writing the two sentence version of what the novel is about was a useful exercise for me.)
