People who know me may know that I have been working on the same idea for years. Now, very little writing has actually been done for this idea, but I am finally pulling it together and have leapt into the deep end.
I used to write down my dreams every morning. Anything that I could remember I would try to get down in my phone's note taking app. I have traced this one back to about 2014, but I think it's older than that. The dream was very simple, more so a scene than an actual story. All I remember was seeing a grand house at night, in the rain. I knew somehow that there was magic there, but that it was hidden from plain sight for protection. And that was it.
So, below I will share a few pages from the first time our main character encounters this house. Please excuse errors and any particular horribleness, I'm trying not to edit (with great difficulty) until I have more pages done.
