Spin-off post

From the ranty post of earlier today about the reader dishing advice to the writers - dichroic writes in comments:

" thing that surprised me is how many of the books I love *don't* really have a story, as such - or have a number of stories in a row- but where the character growth is the continuing thread. Coming of age stories often go that way - Little Women, Tom Sawyer, Anne of Green Gables.

That's actually kind of interesting to think about: your Thea stories *do* have a plot. I think the difference is that Thea's growth is important to those books and necessary to the plot, but isn't what they're *about* in the same way that Little Women is *about* Jo growing up. Or maybe that's totally off base ...hmmmm."

I'd be very interested in hearing what other readers out there who have read the Worldweavers books and are in a position to comment on this idea might think about it...
