Over at the Forum, everyone posted/posts their "Ten Things I've Done..." lists as well.

Rhonddalyn started her's with: "Thought I could see air (while not on drugs or any medication)….I was about six at the time." (see her other entries here and the whole thread here)
This gave way to all kind of thoughts, inspirated by that line.

I was lieing awake for some time last night and thought about it as well.

Here's what I've come up with:

At the age of 6 I could see air.
I was never able to again.
At the age of 9 I was taught to see Air Spirits.
I'm able to call them at will now.
At the age of 15 I was immersed in a war.
I made myself forget I was a sorceress.

I already knew that about Ella, and it will play an important part in the story later. But somhow writing it down in this way, made her history more palpable for me. And I feel I will be able to work her past into the story better, weave it into her actions, make it some kind of driving force for her.

Don't you love it when one random line sparks so much? That's how I got my Charles and Oliver short story He Ain't Heavy - all from one line!
