Planning, planning, planning...
For my storybook, I think that I will attempt to "build" the universe by retelling different creation stories one at a time, building on top of each other until we have a completed universe with the Earth, life, and humans.
Some stories that I think I will be using:The Separation of Heaven and Earth
I have yet to decide if the stories will be connected by some overarching storyline. I think, perhaps, I might try to have them all related by the same storyteller. This is something that I will decide soon.
I think that the main things that I want to learn about (and, subsequently, my readers to learn about) is the variety of creation stories and the idea that everyone can have a unique interpretation or idea of how everything that is came to be. In my opinion, understanding how different cultures and religions believe things came into being is one of the best ways to get to the heart of a culture or religion's belief system and understanding of the world. With this storybook, I hope to contribute just a bit to this understanding while, hopefully, also providing some level of entertainment.
