Babel’s Key – Idea Origin

The idea for Babel’s Key actually came out of a nightmare I had about my husband going off on an expedition with his friends from Krav – a self defence class. In the process of explaining it to him, it became apparent that I could mix it up with the Punk’s Universe.

As I began to turn the dream into a proper narrative it took on a life of it’s own and threw in elements of my gaming life – this is probably due to the Gamer Gate stuff happening at the moment. I had also been researching Lovecraft and trying to work out how to add his life into the Punk’s Universe – I knew he would have had an encounter with the Aquatic Apes or elders but not what.

Then I started to plot where I wanted the ocean empires to have been and realised I very much wanted an under water city as well as a subterranean one and wham…. it all clicked together, or rather is still all clicking together and will be for time to come I think.

So that is how it all started but not sure were it will all end 🙂 Best get back to the writing 🙂
