Hello dear readers. I post today with a small plea (I promise, more in the way of helpful posts soon).
My wife is a visual artist. While her primary medium is photography, she is also a Photoshop guru and creates altered art. We have talked at length about combining my love for writing and her love of art into a single project. I would write a story, maybe 50-100 pages, and she would provide art for the work.
Here’s the thing, for what she does, I want to write something that is a haunting, ethereal, dark fairy tale type of story. Problem being, I haven’t read much in that particular genre and as much as I have some ideas, I’m unsure of the voice for it.
So I ask for your help. Do you have any suggestions of things I should read as research? I appreciate anything you might be able to suggest. I need some guidance and inspiration.
Thank you in advance.
