Hi Graham! Welcome aboard and it is great to have you!
Writing a musical sounds like a lot fun. I would say am the opposite. I am primarily a fantasy writer but I am also attempting learn songwriting even though my musical talent is not very strong. I will probably need help in the area when I get to those. lol
I would like to include songs of sorrow/loss, war/marching, happiness/peace, and of praise to my world’s creator (God) to give my story a lively connection to convey its worldbuilding, emotions, and morals.
I have always like the idea of being a playwright after reading The Redwall series by Brian Jacques who showed his ability of a playwright in the fun and epic songs he included in his stories that always gave it a more memorable impression.
What genre/story setting do you like to focus on?
A real hero remains accountable until the end.
